Impressed Parent

I love this podcast!!! As a parent of young children, I am so glad I found the LS site and podcast. Now I know the importance of teaching children how to learn and best retain information. It's also made me change my approach to teaching them at home (e.g., teaching a little bit of phonics every day instead of in a large block on the weekend; asking them spaced, verbal "quiz" questions a day, 5 days, even two weeks after say reading a book on polar bears (my kids are 2 and 5)). I'd love to hear more content on how parents can help their kids learn after school employing these techniques. I'm also an attorney. I find these tips helpful when I need to learn a new law that I have to advise on. I'd love to hear more about using these techniques in a professional context.

Complex ideas in a highly digestible presentation

If there were a mantra I carry with me about learning, and always will, it will be “retrieval enhances learning”. It’s something that was always innate within my study practices, but I never thought about *why* it was effective. And being conscience of doing it makes it that much more effective! Being aware of ones cognitive process helps anyone learn more efficiently. The tools and examples presented on these podcasts help with that awareness for teaching and learning!
