MEMORY: A PSYCHOLOGY APPROACH TO DEVELOPING LONG TERM MEMORY

MEMORY: A PSYCHOLOGY APPROACH TO DEVELOPING LONG TERM MEMORY

The ‘Education inspection framework: Overview of the evidence’ presents the evidence OFSTED have referenced in the development of the 2019 Inspection Framework. For the first time, inspectors will look at how teaching and assessment are supporting changes to children’s long term memory. Inspectors will evaluate how teachers embed key concepts in children’s long-term memory, through sequencing knowledge and skills that build on previously learnt material, allowing children to connect new knowledge with existing knowledge.

This course aims to develop attendees understanding of memory by developing their understanding of the theoretical concepts used to develop the 2019 Inspection Framework - an understanding of spaced and distributed practice, retrieval practise, interleaving, elaboration, dual coding, and cognitive load theory. Attendees will come away with an understanding that changes in long-term memory is more complex than drilling in or memorising the facts, but how testing and quizzes can be used to support long-term memory. Attendees can then evaluate their curriculum and how it supports long-term memory, retrieval and connections between new and previously learnt material.
