Role of Working Memory in Classroom Learning of Children

Working Memory (WM) influences learning in children and adults. It is an important aspect of our cognitive framework and impacts on ‘how’ we learn as an individual.

We cannot see WM yet we cannot function without it. We know how WM is related to learning, we have some idea of how WM might be enhanced and we also understand the challenges one might experience due to low WM or WM being affected by health conditions. However, often in Education we do not consider enough the role of WM.

In this Masterclass, we will explore the concept of WM, examine the science of WM and understand why it is important for educators to learn about WM. This masterclass is for those interested in careers in Education, Teaching or who have an interest in how we learn.

Our virtual Masterclasses are approximately an hour long, but may run longer if we have a lot of questions.

Our Virtual Outreach

During the unprecedented times of social distancing, our team remain on hand to support you. Over the coming weeks, we are ensuring there is something for everyone, whether you’re a future student, teacher or adviser. We’ve got you.

All our virtual outreach activities on offer have been developed to inform and motivate participants, and link to the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance. This report was redefined and published in January 2018. Laying out eight benchmarks, the report outlined good practice within careers guidance and an expectation that all secondary schools have a careers plan.

Our online Masterclasses meet benchmarks 4 & 7 (Linking curriculum learning to careers & Encounters with further and higher education).

To see what else we're offering online, head on over to www.cumbria.ac.uk/webinars for the rest of our virtual outreach delivery.

If you are a teacher or tutor and would like for your whole class to get involved, drop us an email at outreach@cumbria.ac.uk and we'll see how we can help you. Bespoke events may be possible for schools and colleges, at times that suit you, dependent on academic availability.
