Bloom’s Taxonomy Is One Of The Most Effective Study “Techniques” (Better Than Active Recall)


Do you remember when you were in Grade 3 or 4, just drawing and listening to stories?

Bloom’s taxonomy, which sounds like a floral classification, is actually an educational principle about how well you know your subject (i.e. your level of mastery).

For example, if you studied biology at a low level of mastery, that means that you barely remember what the word ‘cell’ means, but if you have a high level of mastery, you’re out there pushing the boundaries of biological knowledge with new discoveries.

It’s evident that you want a higher level of mastery than a lower level-you don’t have to be at the frontiers of human knowledge for your chemistry exam, but you should be at a high level to cope with all those curveball questions.

(Anki Flashcards) How To Supercharge Your Spaced Repetition & Active Recall



Would you be able to remember these numbers for the next few months if I gave you these numbers? I think you should repeat them a few times today, tomorrow, and at the end of the week—and then in a couple of weeks, then in a month, and hopefully you will remember them by then.

The Correct Way To Use Anki Flashcards (And Why Most People Do It Wrong)


Is it true that around 70% of students who get the best grades use flashcards? Sounds great, doesn’t it? Did you know that 60 to 70% of students who get the lowest grades also do? It’s true that you’ll lose out if you don’t use them, but using them does not give you a significant competitive advantage at higher grades.

Higher-Order Learning: Becoming An Expert


How do we become experts?

It will explore the characteristics and knowledge of an expert, how SOLO and Bloom’s revised taxonomy can assist us in identifying higher-order knowledge structures and thinking processes, as well as the challenges associated with higher-order thinking and how our program teaches it.

Chronic Diseases Cause Bad Memory


The disease is called “inefficient learning”.

It is common for learners of all ages to ask me how they can improve their memory. But this is the wrong question to ask.

In this article, I will briefly outline the main processes research has identified so far and how they impact our memory. How well we retain information is the result of the processes we use to learn it.

Taking notes that excite your students: How they should take notes


I remember falling asleep in high school history class because the teacher always made me write copious notes. For that teacher, “engaged student” meant taking notes.

I fell asleep (which cognitively suggests I was not engaged) simply because I was lazy or unfocused.

Despite our modern understanding of learning and the human brain, many teachers continue to encourage students to take notes linearly.

The Black Box Of Learning: Why Students Get Anxious


“What if I haven’t studied enough?” “What if I get asked a tricky question?” “What if I forget what I studied?” “What if I still have gaps I haven’t found yet?” Well, I tell you that all of these questions arise from the same underlying cause: the black box of learning.

The Research-Practice Gap in Education: Evidence-Based Isn’t Enough


As educators, we all strive to provide the best learning experiences for our students. However, implementing evidence-based learning strategies presents numerous challenges due to the complex nature of education systems. In this article, we will explore why evidence-based learning is not enough and why we need to address the research-practice gap in education.

What You Can Do To Improve Your Memory And Forget Less At School Or University


How Do You Spend Your Study Time? Reflecting on the amount of time you devote to studying, you may find that a great portion is taken up by relearning and revising facts you have forgotten. The solution, which may sound improbable, is to make sure you don’t need to review material in the first place. […]
