Memory Techniques

Mailing list

Various mailing lists are useful to find out more about memory techniques:


"Gestures Convey Message: Learning in Progress" by Rick Weiss 2007 says "students who spontaneously gesture as they work through new ideas tend to remember them longer than those who do not move their hands. ... Susan Wagner Cook ... showing that even abstract gestures can enhance learning ... Those in the two groups that were taught the gestures were three times as likely to solve the equations correctly than were those who had learned only the verbal instructions ... gesturing is causing an improvement in learning ..."

Is that why we were taught "sit still and don't fidget" in school?

Is this related to LimbicStimulation and PhysioArithmetics, or something entirely different? -- -- DavidCary? [[DateTime?(2007-09-20T15:55:04Z)]]
