Why Teach Memory Skills?
When you think about it all education is about creating memories in the minds of
the learners. Can we honestly say a student has learnt a new fact, idea, formula,

Perhaps it was taught, but until it is in memory, it is not learned. The ability
to remember is essential for classroom success.
In this T2TUK/Kagan-UK workshop you will learn
how to shift student’s perceptions about their memory, enabling them to make dramatic
improvements in recall. You will learn about:
