Memorization or Realization

  • Memorization: Take information, store it and later repeat the information back to teacher.

  • No grasp of the significance of event.

  • Need to know meaning.

  • Delivering data to be memorized is no longer a teacher’s primary purpose.

  • Realizations: Offer students connections in their learning.

  • Allows students to apply their learning to situations that are meaningful in their lives.

Learning in the moment and after the fact
Learning ‘In the Moment’ and ‘After the Fact’

  • In The Moment (ITM)- After seeing one example students understand how to solve problem.

  • After The Fact (ATF) – Do not understand until they see multiple examples.

    Students are different and they might be ITM learners in one class but ATF learners in another.
