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).
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. Repeated review of the same material either through study or formative assessments across time can support learning of core components of adult literacies, as well as promoting application and transfer of learned skills.
Use It In Your Learning Environment
Instructors can incorporate a brief daily review of concepts that were learned earlier, provide assignments that re-expose students to previously learned information, or give quizzes that are cumulative. They can also support learners in spacing out their own learning by helping them plan their studying and by promoting the benefits of spaced learning- as it works best if it is the learner's preferred method of study. It is important to note that the quality of the initial encoding may determine the effectiveness and benefits of spaced learning through repetition. That is, If the learner does not correctly learn a concept initially, then further practice could unintentionally reinforce bad habits, misunderstandings, or misconceptions. Pairing spaced learning with immediate feedback could help reinforce accurate initial learning to maximize the benefit of spaced learning.
Product developers can design quick reviews of concepts and skills that have been introduced, and space practice across time to enhance retention. Products providing immediate feedback with each learning experience will support accurate understanding and effective spaced learning. Interleaving concepts when presenting new material during classroom or online instruction naturally creates spaced practice. When learners can repeat activities in products at any time, it allows them to create their own spaced learning while supporting Long-term Memory.
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.
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.
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.
