Unlocking the Power of Memory: 7 Proven Techniques to Supercharge Your Learning

I look forward to reading your thoughts through the comments 😀


  1. Thanks for sharing these tips! My granddaughter just switched schools, and her new school has a very different system of classes – more like a college than middle school. I’m going to share this article with her. 🙂 <3

  2. Number 3. Slow by slow revisits and add ins/ons to get the familiarity. I have tried them all on the list, but without any ability to visually hang the learning on, it’s a struggle. Repetition and anchoring the themed areas together as a whole was best. Mnemonic learning was close too. A base start to then learn rote on the basic individual words. The best learning? Real life scenarios and daily repetition. Hands on setting up an intra venous infusion of antibiotics for example. I was a dab hand at knowing where information could be gleaned for gold standard practice within policies to support interventions. I don’t miss learning though now retired. But appreciate a need to explore systems to suit each individual student’s preferred learning style. And of course different lesson content suits certain styles too. Great link Brenda.

  3. Hi Brenda, good to be reading this.
    Read over the post you shared and thought, trust you to find the most informative and helpful posts to share. 😁

    a great day your way 🤍

  4. Interesting techniques, Brenda. All of them will be useful as I age and sometimes can’t remember why I walked into a room! Still, I can’t do without sticky notes and scratch pads LOL.

    • I’m with you on not knowing why I walked into a room … I also find I turn to write something on the board for the students in class and my mind goes blank too.

  5. Fantastic tips and techniques! I also use rhyme or a silly tune to remember things….sometimes that little ditty sticks for me better than anything!

    • It’s surprising just how effective it can be. Less so, when I find them regurgitated back in assessments, but at least it shows they were listening and learned something 😁
