Based on this week’s learning resources I gained a deeper understanding about information processing and how students take information in and store it in their brains for retrieval. Ore says that “images [are] more memorable than text”. (Ore, 2010)
Power points and virtual fieldtrips are instructional strategies that can help students to have a deeper understanding and can enhance their learning. These ideas will help me to teach for understanding and not memorization.
