Meaningful Memory – – Dr Niki Kaiser

This week’s Blog of the Week (link included below) comes from Dr Niki Kaiser, Network Research Lead at Norwich Research School. The article considers how an understanding of working with memory can have a positive impact on Teaching and Learning. It emphasises the crucial point that true learning involves making meaning of what we remember.

Dr Kaiser summarises “Activating Hard Thinking” to support learners in making meaningful connections to prior knowledge and how this in-turn can provide the foundation for future learning.
