ELT stories | Tea time! Paired Associates Memory Assessment - Cambridge Brain Sciences In this task you have to remember which objects are hidden in different boxes. Psychologists call the skills required for this task 'paired-associate-learning', as you are required to learn to pair two items in memory - in this case the type of object and the location of the object. When one of the paired features is revealed (in this case the object), you have to remember its associate (the location it is hidden in). Along with our colleagues at the University of Cambridge and at the Institute of Psychiatry in London, we investigated which areas of the brain become active when performing this task. Furthermore, we studied what happens to this activation pattern when the task gets harder and harder. References Gould, R.L., Brown, R.G., Owen, A. Gould, R.L., Brown, R.G., Owen, A.

What are they thinking/feeling at that moment? Verbal Working Memory Assessment - Cambridge Brain Sciences The digit span task exercises your verbal working memory. Scientists refer to working memory as the cognitive system that allows the temporary storage and manipulation of information. According to one influential cognitive theory, this system has specialised components, one of which, the 'phonological loop', underlies verbal working memory abilities (Baddeley & Hitch 1974). The phonological loop is comprised of a verbal storage system and a rehearsal system. If you do this task, you may find yourself mentally rehearsing the string of digits as they appeared on screen; this is the rehearsal system in action. It allows the visual inputs to be recoded so that they can enter your short term verbal store and it also refreshes decaying representations (that is, any item that is about to be forgotten). Verbal working memory is involved in many everyday tasks, from remembering your friend's telephone number while you enter it into your phone, to understanding long and difficult sentences.

British Life and Culture in the UK - Woodlands Junior School 11 Alternatives to "Round Robin" (and "Popcorn") Reading Round Robin Reading (RRR) has been a classroom staple for over 200 years and an activity that over half of K-8 teachers report using in one of its many forms, such as Popcorn Reading. RRR's popularity endures, despite overwhelming criticism that the practice is ineffective for its stated purpose: enhancing fluency, word decoding, and comprehension. Cecile Somme echoes that perspective in Popcorn Reading: The Need to Encourage Reflective Practice: "Popcorn reading is one of the sure-fire ways to get kids who are already hesitant about reading to really hate reading." Facts About Round Robin Reading In RRR, students read orally from a common text, one child after another, while the rest of the class follows along in their copies of the text. Popcorn Reading: A student reads orally for a time, and then calls out "popcorn" before selecting another student in class to read. Why all the harshitude? Stigmatizes poor readers. 11 Better Approaches 1. 2. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
