'Powerful Knowledge' Conference for All HGA Students
Every student at Harris Garrard Academy will have a chance to attend a 'Powerful Knowledge' Conference, held at the school this term.
The conference is a way of sharing with students some strategies that will help them encode important information to their long-term memories and retrieve it when needed - whether that be in an exam, an interview, or simply a conversation.
"We want to include our students in the discussion about cognitive science and how to learn - sharing a language on how they can remember more," said Mr Case (pictured delivering the conference presentation). "Because knowledge is power!"
The techniques focussed on are from learningscientists.org and included:
- Retrieval practice
- Dual coding
- Spaced practice
