Three Brand New "Learning How to Learn" Strategies:

This week I share three short videos that feature the final three independent learning strategies from the “Learning How to Learn” Workshop I presented to parents and students last fall. “Looking for a Pattern,” “Making Learning Implicit,” and “Using Metacognition & Reflection” round out my list of learning strategies that, taken together, offer children a variety of ways to learn and remember academic content. About two-thirds of my students attended the hour-long, after-school workshop, and I followed up with the families of the remaining children at a later time. Though I try to create rich, authentic, contextual learning experiences for my students on a daily basis, there are still times when they need to learn how to study and remember discrete pieces of information independently, especially as they progress through the upper elementary grades and into middle school and high school.

 

 

Helping children develop a strong repertoire of reliable “brain-friendly” learning strategies was the focus of this workshop. I hope you find this information helpful, and I welcome your questions and comments.
