Introduction to the science of learning
We’re proud to be working with partners from across the sector to deliver the Summer Series: a programme of free webinars to support teachers and school leaders through, and beyond, the coronavirus outbreak.
In our eighth session, Ambition Institute's Learning Design Fellow Nick Rose, and his co-host Amarbeer Singh Gill, introduce the science of learning.
Watch back to learn about:
- The limitations of working memory and what this means for teaching.
- The role long-term memory plays in supporting working memory.
- The role of forgetting in learning, and how learning can be consolidated.
