Retrieval-Based Learning: A Powerful Way To Improve Learning And Memory, Jeffrey D. Karpicke Jan 2019

Retrieval-Based Learning: A Powerful Way To Improve Learning And Memory, Jeffrey D. Karpicke

SoTL Commons Conference

Recent advances in the cognitive science of learning have important implications for strategies that all learners can use. For example, cognitive research has identified one strategy that promotes complex learning called retrieval practice: Practicing actively reconstructing one’s knowledge while studying has potent effects on long-term learning. Yet when people monitor and regulate their own learning, they often choose to engage in inferior strategies like repetitive reading, and the ultimate consequence is poor learning. This talk provides an overview of our research program on retrieval-based learning. In recent work, we have extended retrieval practice to meaningful learning of complex educational ...

Utilisation De La Peinture, De La Musique Et Du Théâtre Pour Favoriser La Motivation Dans L’Apprentissage De Fle, Laura Gabriella Lopez Muñoz, Yenny Carolina Gonzalez Rueda Jan 2019

Utilisation De La Peinture, De La Musique Et Du Théâtre Pour Favoriser La Motivation Dans L’Apprentissage De Fle, Laura Gabriella Lopez Muñoz, Yenny Carolina Gonzalez Rueda

Licenciatura en Español y Lenguas Extranjeras

Este artículo, resultado de la investigación, reside sobre la línea del saber educativo, pedagógico y didáctico de la facultad de ciencias de la educación de la Universidad de La Salle. El objetivo de este trabajo de investigación consiste en introducir una dimensión afectiva en el curso de FLE mediante varias actividades artísticas como el teatro, la pintura y la música. Con una metodología cualitativa y un enfoque comunicativo se propuso a los estudiantes del Colegio Menorah -padres al mismo tiempo de las niñas que estudian ahí- un ambiente ideal lleno de aspectos afectivos, implantados por este tipo de actividades, que ...


Material Forms: What Is Really Going On? Shaping Who We Are And What We Do, Vicky J. Grube Nov 2017

Material Forms: What Is Really Going On? Shaping Who We Are And What We Do, Vicky J. Grube

The Qualitative Report

Using visual and ethnographic methods the author forms a connection between materiality and the memories of childhood. The researcher begins by asking the question, “Can a studio environment create encounters between a researcher and preschool children that deepen understanding of culture?” To this end, the researcher engaged in sensory research practices through ethnographic methods in a preschool art studio. Through free choice art making, children were found expressing their emotions and demonstrating an awareness of adult culture. In particular, the researcher’s encounter with four-year old George was enriched through sensory participation and triggered embodied and empathetic knowing. As it ...


Using Neuroeducation As A Model To Evaluate The Effect Of Imagery On Chinese Character Writing, Ellyn L. Arwood, Carol X. Lam May 2017

Using Neuroeducation As A Model To Evaluate The Effect Of Imagery On Chinese Character Writing, Ellyn L. Arwood, Carol X. Lam

Education Faculty Publications and Presentations

Using imagery as a strategy for language learning may be helpful to encode linguistic forms into conceptual networks for long-term memory. Based on Arwood’s neuroeducation model of language learning, this research evaluated the effect of imagery in Chinese character writing by English-speaking adolescent students. After comparing imagery effects under three instructional conditions (i.e., English translation, pictorial presentation, and verbal-contextual interpretation), the results showed that the use of imagery predicted significantly better writing results in the immediate and one-week writing tests, but not in the four-week writing test. Cognitive analyses found that imagery was commonly used as a mediational ...


Artistic Drawing As A Mnemonic Device, Leslie Michelle Baker Christensen Jan 2016

Artistic Drawing As A Mnemonic Device, Leslie Michelle Baker Christensen

Dissertations & Theses

Despite art-based learning being widely used, existing data are primarily qualitative, and most research has not isolated particular variables such as memory for empirical study. The few experiments that have been conducted demonstrated that drawing improves free recall of unpaired words, and retention improves after lessons integrated with drawing, drama, and narrative exercises. To help fill the gap in the current literature, the present study compared the effectiveness of encoding and the rate of memory decay between a drawing mnemonic and note taking on a paired associates task. Using a within-subjects experimental design, participants were presented with word pairs and ...

Digital Transformations In The Classroom: Walking, Autobiography, Memory Objects Hyperlinked, Joshua Hussey Mar 2015

Digital Transformations In The Classroom: Walking, Autobiography, Memory Objects Hyperlinked, Joshua Hussey

SoTL Commons Conference

I will present pedagogical findings that discuss the intersections between memory and imagination, and the autobiographic transformations that occur when the process of walking is rendered through academic writing. Memory functions as the ground of data for the imagination and the imaginative leaps that translate into material resonances. In my project, I describe the process of “autobiographic research” that my students undertake and compare two class assignments at different universities, The University of Georgia and Georgia Institute of Technology: both assignments have similar methodologies but very different products. My students at The University of Georgia write traditional essays whereas my ...


Remembering Things We’Ve Never Done: Memory’S Daughters And The Literary Experience, William C. Johnson Jun 2013

Remembering Things We’Ve Never Done: Memory’S Daughters And The Literary Experience, William C. Johnson

The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning

Memory, essential in creative writing, inspires us to weave literary reading into the narrative of personal experience and to seek, through recollection, our psychic wholeness.


Interactive Effects Of Working Memory Self-Regulatory Ability And Relevance Instructions On Text Processing, Nancy Jo Hamilton May 2012

Interactive Effects Of Working Memory Self-Regulatory Ability And Relevance Instructions On Text Processing, Nancy Jo Hamilton

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

Reading is a process that requires the enactment of many cognitive processes. Each of these processes uses a certain amount of working memory resources, which are severely constrained by biology. More efficiency in the function of working memory may mediate the biological limits of same. Reading relevancy instructions may be one such method to assist readers in utilizing working memory resources more efficiently.

This study examines the relationship between perspective relevance instructions and participants' ability to regulate their working memory resources. In a 3 x 2 x 2 design the study extended the literature by utilizing a measure of fluid ...


Le Developpement Precoce De La Memoire Specialisee, Daniel A. Wagner Jan 1987

Le Developpement Precoce De La Memoire Specialisee, Daniel A. Wagner

Journal Articles (Literacy.org)

The study of specialized memory skills has a relative long history in experimental psychology, particularly with research on adults who practice their mnemonic skills within particular domains. The present study was designed to investigate the development of specialized mnemonic skills among young children. The study was undertaken in Morocco, which provided a context where 350 6-7 year old children were selected in such a way which allowed contrasts in terms of: preschool experience (none vs. Quranic vs. modern preschool); environment (urban vs. rural); maternal language (Arabic vs. Berber); and gender. Six differenct memory tests were employed including 4 different tests ...

Retention As A Function Of Competition In Learning, William Wayne Parker

All Master's Theses

This study was undertaken to add to empirical evidence for use in drawing some sort of conclusions as to the significance of competition as a factor in retention of learning. This is necessary if teachers are to offer optimum learning conditions to their students.
