About the event

This master class looks at the three types of memory: short term, long term and working memory.

'Teach me how to remember.'

In studies Working memory is considered by researchers to be more important than IQ and is the critical component in enabling academic progress.

New information must be processed, assessed for importance, registered in short term memory, and either used immediately and forgotten or stored in long term memory for future use.

Information is held temporarily and manipulated before being used. 15% of learners have a weakness in this area.

This master class looks at the three types of memory:

  • Short term;
  • Long term;
  • Working memory.

The course will examine new research and suggest a range of individual and classroom strategies to increase the learner's capacity to memorise information.
