Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Instruction and training presented in multiple formats allows learners to activate different cognitive skills and Background Knowledge that are necessary to remember procedural and content information. Using text, visuals, gestures, audio, and digital formats facilitates retention of information into Short- and Long-term Memory and helps to accommodate learner preferences.
Use It In Your Learning Environment
During periods of direct instruction, instructors can employ a variety of techniques including presenting information through visuals, posters, and text on boards, or through digital tools, to reinforce important concepts. Digital resources can be compiled into an on-demand collection to help learners access multimodal information on their own schedules.
Products can readily and thoughtfully leverage color, graphics, animation, and sound for instructions to draw Attention to salient pieces of information and support both Short- and Long-term Memory. Additionally, developers should provide the ability for instructors and learners to access and utilize various digital presentation tools including videos, online texts, and slide-type presentations in an on-demand format.
When instructors ask questions or have learners create questions before introducing a text, they activate interest, increase Motivation, and help them assess what they already know about a given topic.
Learning and studying information across multiple sessions that are spaced, or distributed in time, can promote learning and long-term retention of both basic and conceptually complex facts and concepts.
When instructors are able to provide context, and connect math concepts to an adult learner's world, math can be seen as relevant and applicable to their daily lives and work- a core aspect of adult Numeracy.
