Many students struggle with remembering facts and material because they simply don’t take the time work their mind on a regular basis. As subjects get harder, they find that their mind is unprepared to tackle the information. Rather than asking how to memorize faster for exams, students should be learning how to use their memory more effectively while they study.
In ICAN, we believe that our teachers can help our students to memorize efficiently by applying a memorization technique called MEMORY PALACE.
What is memory palace?
A Memory Palace is an imaginary location in your mind where you can store mnemonic images. The most common type of memory palace involves making a journey through a place you know well, like a building or town. Along that journey there are specific locations that you always visit in the same order.
How can teachers apply it?
By teaching the students this technique, students can unlock quick learning!
There's a process that ICAN teachers are trained to do. It is connected to READ, DRAW, WRITE - another ICAN proprietary learning device that aims to develop a faster way of learning without sacrificing the quality of service.
In the vlog below, an ICAN teacher officially launched the MEMORY PALACE technique for the student to apply. The goal is for the student to narrate his accurate interpretation of the story he read without having to use visual clues. By using memory palace, the student was able to remember keywords and important details that later lead to verbally explain his own version.
