Short Term Memory: Repeat to Remember

  • The “moment of learning” is the most important
  • The more “hooks” into a memory, the better (the more it relates to concepts and experiences already in the learner’s brain)
  • People recall better in an environment that is like where they learned a concept in the first place
  • A memory is retained in the same physical cells in which is was learned
  • Create a focused room for more effective learning and memory (language room, music room, etc.)
