Memorization

A NecessaryEvil

finally a few words about memory
Finally, a few words about memory…
  • One of the lamest excuses for failure in any course is “The teacher expected us to memorize, and that’s not learning.”
  • Baloney!
  • Lets consider the evolution of learning.
  • In the first step, the learner acquires information.
slide3

When knowledge is sufficient, the learner begins to understand, but even in the process of understanding, more information is gathered and stored.

  • Understanding eventually leads to insight and discovery.
slide4

Which reminds me of something a very sage teacher wrote many years ago.

  • “It takes some students twice as long to tell me what they think as it takes them to tell me what they know.”
  • This course is mostly about uploading information, and that requires putting data into your memory.
slide5

The learner then stores (memorizes) that information.

  • When enough information is stored, the learner has laid the foundation for knowledge which is knowing the information that has been stored.
  • Knowledge grows as more information is gathered and stored (memorized).
slide6

Eventually, the learner will have enough understanding, insight, and knowledge to solve problems and to retrieve the information he/she has stored in creative ways.

  • Too many students want to move to the end-loading portion of this process before they have up-loaded anything.
