Topics
  • Memory Consolidation
  • Embodied Cognition in the Classroom
  • Test-enhanced Learning
memory consolidation
Memory Consolidation
  • Offline memory processing during sleep
    • Strengthen/stabilize memory
    • Inoculate learning against loss
    • Increase generalization or transfer of skill learning
  • Performance benefits seen in the absenceof further practice

Learning doesn’t stop when students leave the classroom

memory consolidation1
Memory Consolidation
  • Efficacy of time of test, in relation to learning event
  • When can you best measure actual ability?

Learning doesn’t stop when students leave the classroom

embodied cognition in the classroom
Embodied Cognition in the Classroom
  • Motor processing is involved with basic cognitive processing

The hockey player finished the shot.

Embodied Cognition in the Classroom
  • Motor processes not only affect cognition, but also affect learning
  • Learning can be improved by overt actions
    • Memory is stronger when tasks are performed than when the same information is studied
  • Learning can be improved via the observationof action (e.g. hand gesture)
    • Math learning in children is improved if instruction includes gesture
  • Involving the motor system in instruction can increase learning and memory
test enhanced learning

Retrieval Practice

Test-enhanced Learning
  • Practicing the skill of retrieval leads to greater stability in memory
  • Foreign language vocabulary learning
    • Study and Test on all material (4x)
    • Continue testing on all material (4x) but stop studying once correct response was obtained
    • Continue studying all material (4x) but stop testing once correct response was obtained
    • Study and Test on all material once, but stop both once correct response obtained

Karpicke & Roediger, 2008

Retrieval Practice

  • Study and test on all material (4x)
  • Continue testing on all material but stop studying
  • Continue studying all material but stop testing
  • Study and Test on all material 1x, but stop both

Karpicke & Roediger, 2008

Retrieval Practice

  • Practicing retrieval leads to greater long-term retention than additional studying
  • Related studies have found that students do not believe that this form of practice will increase performance
  • More frequent classroom assessments can increase
  • overall memory performance
