Retrieval practice is a powerful learning strategy that is often overlooked in traditional classroom settings. Encouraging students to actively engage in retrieving information through low-stakes practice can lead to better long-term learning outcomes. “Don’t just stop at encoding. Yes, read the text, but now let’s do something with it. Actually practice recalling it,” says Dr. Blunt.
As an educator, Dr. Blunt believes in paying attention to what works, not just what we think works. With her focus on the science of learning and memory, she offers valuable insights for educators who want to help their students succeed.
