Desirable Difficulties ... interesting stuff!
New information in small nibbles rather than full mouthfuls, variety (interleaving) rather than topic-based lessons, spacing, retrieval, ‘low-stake quizzing’ …
It's interesting to see how the work of Prof Robert Bjork at the learning and forgetting lab at UCLA throws into question traditional paradigms -- and the findings seem to sit neatly with what we've been doing in the development of SpeakYourMind. Interesting food for thought - and more for the drawing board.
