Are you a classroom teacher looking to better understand the intricacies of memory in your students?
In ‘The Seven Sins of Memory: How the Mind Forgets and Remembers’, psychologist Daniel Schacter digs into the complex world of memory and its imperfections, offering insights that can help teachers effectively teach and support students.
The more I learn about cognitive science and cognitive psychology, the more I want to discover more information. I’ve taken a closer look at The Seven Sins of Memory, and currently revisiting one of my favourite books, Memory At Work In The Classroom.
In the former publication, Schacter identifies seven “sins” or flaws in our memory system that can lead to forgetting, misremembering, and distortion.
