Practicing Memory Recall Boosts Science Learning

Psychology researchers recently found that practicing memory recall lead to improved long-term retention of science information when compared to other learning techniques. The researchers compared students that learned by using concept maps versus a second group that practiced retrieval. They found the students who practiced retrieval to perform better in long-term retention tests. This learning and memory research could help improve science teaching methods and lead to new strategies to teach science more effectively.
