What can students do to make learning really stick?
Cognitive science tells us it's NOT to re-read our notes or textbook.
Instead, practice "retrieval" -- recalling what we've learned out of our brains, not our books.
This post outlines 10 simple tips and strategies you can use in class to make learning long-term, including:
1. Brain dumps
2. Two things
3. Retrieve taking (instead of note taking)
4. Student-produced quizzes
5. Guided conversation
6. Now, then, and way back
7. Self testing
8. Recall information visually
9. Retrieval mapping
10. White board exit ticket
