This booklet developed by The Centre for Working Memory and Learning at the University of York, provides an introduction to working memory and the role it plays in everyday life, especially in supporting learning in school.
Learning can be such a difficult and exhausing activity for some students. It is important it is that they understand how they learn best as individuals, so that they can leave education with the skills they need to live life to the full. This booklet should be essential reading for all new teachers - there seem to be many students in secondary school who struggle with working memory problems, needing support. and possibly not diagnosed.
I believe it is a very interesting topic. I always have children who cannot recall what they learn, I use different approaches and one of them visual, but still cannot relate the name/sound to the shape of the letters.
