Memory - understanding and improving

see FREE INTRODUCTION - the first of 10 lessons We all ask and expect our students to learn things, and this requires MEMORY. Memory IS learning. Without memory, there can be no learning. BUT - do we ever give our students an understanding of what memory is, and more importantly, strategies for improving their memory? “Learn your multiplication tables”… sure, but HOW? This series of 10 lessons is designed with this in mind. Session 1: Introduction to memory Session 2: Types of memory - short and long term memory Session 3: Strategies 1 - linking and stories Session 4: Strategies 2 - mnemonics Session 5: Strategies 3 - names and faces Session 6: Strategies 4 - lists Session 7: Strategies 5 - numbers Session 8: Strategies 6 - using routes and locations Session 9: Strategies 7 - misc. Session 10: Memory IS us - the consequences of losing memory Each session comprises: a fully animated, stimulating PowerPoint loads of embedded videos (can be extracted if required) Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions, and a BIG BIG thanks for looking (as a full time practising teacher, I KNOW how time consuming this process can be). ALL my postings are FULLY “classroom-tested” - before I publish, my lessons are tested by both myself and colleagues, rigorously evaluated and discussed, and continually updated to maximise their effectiveness. But there is always the possibility of error and room for improvement, so do please provide constructive feedback.

Professional Development Training: Memory Techniques for ADHD Students

(0)
Working memory is part of our executive function and if often referred to as our “mental workspace” where information is stored and used for a short time i.e. a few seconds. It’s that place where we store a phone number, an address, an email address, etc. If a student is not able to retain the information needed to solve the problem, then the student is unable to complete the task and, of course, does not feel good about it at all. What is language processing? Several parts of language are very difficult for children with ADHD to make sense of and use successfully on a daily basis. Syntax is the set of rules of oral and written grammar. Semantics are the word meanings that influence oral and written grammar. Finally, pragmatics is the social use of language to convey thoughts and humor. The following thirty-three presentation and training slides are an explanation of many different memory techniques and strategies that can be modeled and used successfully with students with characteristics of ADHD to help improve his/her/their working memory deficits. This training can be used in a focused faculty meeting, an all-day professional development session, and/or a small group professional learning community. As well, this training can be given to parents to allow them to help their children at home more successfully when studying with them or helping with homework!

Made this for a revision session to be delivered to Year 10. Could easily be given to Year 11 as well. Did an activity as a starter how many words can you remember from a list of random objects then explained about making a journey through your house (Dominic O’ Brien - memory champion tips) or a story with the words and then see if they could improve how many they could remember with a different set of words using this strategy.

Communication skills: a new strategy for training

In 1993 the General Medical Council (GMC) published Tomorrow's Doctors, a set of recommendations for medical education. Much of this document was concerned with the training of communication skills and how this could be improved. This recommendation follows decades of evidence about the importance of communication from many widely respected medical teachers from every discipline: Doctors can discharge (their) important tasks effectively only if they possess the relevant skills.

A critical question that often faces educational technologists is how to deliver excellence in teaching and subject-matter content to learners. A corollary to this question is how and what instructional technologies can be brought to address this search for particular contexts? This paper reports our experience of the first phase of a three-phased integration of Computer- Mediated Communication (CMC) aimed at improving instructional effectiveness.
