If, as educators, we understand how memory works, we can utilise this information to help children remember information for the longer term.
This course will provide an overview of how thinking works and its relationship between working memory and long-term memory. Through practical activities we will explore the relationship between prior knowledge and problem solving.
Using research from Daniel Willingham, Robert Bjork and Barak Rosenshine we will apply the principles of memory storage and retrieval to the primary classroom.
After attending this course, you should be able to use the information about how memory works to inform your lesson design to aid pupils’ retention and recall.
This session is suitable for NQTs, teachers and teaching assistants as well as SENCOs in the primary phase. School leaders focusing on curriculum design may also find this course valuable.
The course will run via Zoom with opportunities for practical activities, breakout discussions and reflection. Course handouts and resources will be sent prior to the session.
