When I study math, I don't just study the same problem over and over again. I want to challenge myself. So I practice different problems each time so I can learn something. Interleaving can help you choose the correct strategy to solve a problem, and it can also help you to see the links, similarities, and differences between ideas.
Retrieval practice as helped me when studying for a test or having to memorize music. I first bring the information to mind, then I use that information to answer a question, or play a part in music, that way the information that is stored is easier for me to remember. Retrieval practice is an evidence-based strategy that dramatically improves learning.
When I try to memorize a information, I relate it to something. How does this information, relate to me? If I tried to connect the information to something meaningful in my life, I would be practicing elaborative rehearsal, which is an effective studying method. Elaborative rehearsal leads to much stronger long-term memory storage, making it easier to remember.
The use of multisensory instruction continues to be important for enhancing memory and learning for all children. In addition to multisensory teaching methods, information should also be presented in multiple formats, such as in spatial and linear formats.
Spaced practice helps me when learning a new subject. When I have a test in history, I plan out when I am going to practice, like a schedule. I then study older information to keep it in mind.
