There is one critical aspect of teaching and learning that is missing….Teaching students how to remember. From an early age we bombard learners with information but at no time do we ever teach students how to remember efficiently or effectively. I believe that teaching students, of any age memory skills is a cost effective way of improving attainment and empowering young minds. Having a good memory increases the attention span, improves confidence and encourages positive social interaction. I'm on a crusade to get classrooms, schools, colleges and local authorities to introduce memory skills into the curriculum. I would be interested to hear F.E. staffs' thoughts, ideas and questions regarding this idea.
