REMEMBER, REMEMBER - HOW DEVELOP MEMORY, MOTIVATION AND ATTENTION IN THE CLASSROOM

Memory matters - giving students the tools to develop an excellent memory
About this course

Changes in the curriculum require teachers to confront the issue of how to teach memory skills head-on. This course combines an introduction to memory palaces with an exploration of how to enhance pupils’ attention and motivation. By showing students why memory matters, and how to focus attention on salient structural features of information they're trying to memorise, the course provides teachers with tools to transform learning and attainment.

This course can be delivered as standard INSET and as a class or larger group workshop involving students.

Course Outcomes:
  • Learn how to build a memory palace
  • Explore narrative techniques that help students to agglomerate facts into memorable concepts
