You may have joined us in November when we talked together about the book “Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning.” Our app stars are back to help us explore various apps students and faculty can use to facilitate learning related to concepts in the book such as
  • Retrieval (quizzing, flashcards, etc)
  • Elaboration (use of metaphor and visual images)
  • Reflection
  • Generation - the act of trying to solve a question or problem rather than being presented with information.

If you haven’t purchased the book, you may want to do so, Purchase the book  here.

If you want to brush up on some of the concepts, you may want to read 1 or 2 of the resources suggested by Harvard Business Press or review this set of flashcards.

TLT Members have access to the recording from the November 7th event here.
