Here is a good TED Talk on Working Memory by Educational Psychologist Peter Doolittle. This is good review of what we’ve discussed, and hopefully extends your understanding of working memory. Consider:
- In your own words, how would you explain working memory to someone?
- Reflect on Dr. Doolittle’s message: What struck you as interesting?
- What implications does his message have for the way you think, learn and remember?
- What is his final “takeway (most important) point”? What are the implications of this point?
