Memory (Listening) Transfer Awareness
Many of us are familiar with the big variety of brain games
designed for visual working memory speed. Unfortunately, they do not measure long term memory transfer, visual and
auditory, needed to understand, and retain, in-depth meanings when learning new
My writings for years have emphasized the need for visual
and auditory integration, for following procedures, but there are additional
properties often unnoticed; long term
memory transfer, the basis for understanding/comprehending, retaining, and
applying new information.
We become horrified and baffled, blaming the problem on CoVid isolation with too many applications to sort through coupled with school/parent/business administrative issues.
I have referenced this transfer as: Deep Learning. My initial trial studies suggested that certain environmental parameters or conditions had to be in place. These earlier conditions are now replaced by online learning through the adoption of device screens.
My former writings have cautioned about too much screen time with visual images can create an inverse auditory memory transfer needed for conceptualization. Screen time should couple not only with concept practice, but inherent strategies that include widely adopted note taking and visualization coupled with self-talk while slowly increasing the difficulty measures through a variety of lessons.
