Six Strategies for Effective Learning

Six Strategies for Effective Learning: Posters for teachers to use in their classrooms
Six Strategies for Effective Learning

Recently, Dr. Yana Weinstein and myself received funding from APS to create these posters illustrating strategies for effective learning from cognitive science. We were motivated by this report indicating that teacher-training textbooks do not cover these six key strategies:

  • Spaced Practice
  • Retrieval Practice
  • Elaboration
  • Interleaving
  • Concrete Examples
  • Dual Coding

Help us spread these posters around so that teachers and students have easy access to evidence-based learning strategies! We have even started having them translated into other languages.

re:writing-sketching-checking: when doing just that, I find it helpful to draw connective threads between items. It crowds the sheet somewhat, but the point is to do away with the sheet! Indeed after I do that, I find the material so well digested in mind, that I do not need the sheet any more.
