    Memory Athletes use techniques and tricks that enable them to remember long lists of information. Research shows that students who use memory strategies perform better academically, because these strategies help expand working memory and access long term memory.

Nelson wrote the book, "Memory Superpowers", that helps readers learn the secrets to remembering everything from the world capitals to the elements of the periodic table to speeches and soliloquies.

    The One About Making Math Easier

    Welcome to Season 3 of School Dazed!  Many of us grew up believing that we didn't have math minds. Our guest would argue that educators have "taken the language of math and abstracted it beyond recognition, and that's why kids are confused." Dr. Randy Palisoc is 6th grade math teacher and in his TED Talk, "Math Isn't Hard, It's A Language" he explains how math can be made accessible for all students.

So Much Good Information!!

Wish I had access to information like this when my son was growing up. The diversity and quality of the guests on this show is outstanding! David and Doneda ask such great questions and then get out of the way and let the experts speak. Such a refreshing change from most talk shows!

Best Professional Development Ever!

As a veteran teacher with over 10 years teaching experience, this show is the best professional development I have ever had. It has allowed me to gain access to professionals I would otherwise not be able to gain access to and glean from their experience.
