4 Powerful Tools Teaching Tools Every Educator Should Be Using Today with Dr. Pooja K. Agarwal

My name is Ladek and I’m your Host from Open LMS and this is episode number 102 with Dr. Pooja Agarwal. Dr. Agarwal is an assistant professor at the Berklee College of Music, an expert in cognitive science and author of the book “Powerful Teaching” and the website retrievalpractice.org.In this very practical conversation Dr. Agarwal and I talk about:🎓 How she has created a foundation for how to think about education as a process of getting learning “out”rather than “in” - the heads of learners.🔧 The four “Power Tools” for learning she details in her book, which include, retrieval practice, spacing, interleaving, and  feedback driven metacognition.💬 Why easy learning is also “easy forgetting.” In other words why cramming never (really) works and why retrieval is absolutely critical for long term learning, and how to ensure that retrieval practice also results in synthesis.🙏 Why you should always ask learners what they remember, rather than reminding them what you’ve already covered in a class.Subscribe to eLearn Magazinehttps://www.elearnmagazine.com/newsletter/
