It seems that taking on new information is relatively easy for anyone to do. Retaining and recalling information however seems to be a bigger challenge. Trust me, I know. I have a sieve for a memory at times!
Traditionally, we've used notepads and pens to jot down things that we need to remember. That works really well for me and always has. Regardless of whether I refer back to those notes just the process of jotting them down seems to aid the old grey matter.
In today's digital world, with so many tools at our fingertips, I wonder what other methods, beyond the written notepad, are available to our learners to help them catch their learning? What other tools, techniques and methods can you think of?
Here's a starter. When on my Level 5 course with DPG, our facilitator took photos of flip chart activities and shared them with the group using the community. I have to confess, I'd never considered using this method to capture the workings of a group in a learning setting. What a brilliant idea and one that's certainly helped me since.
So what else is out there? What other tools, techniques and methods can you think of to help learners catch their learning?
I'd love to hear.
