It was a simple and an effective course reminding us to be aware of how our students learn, their capacity and the importance of spending time to unpacking the ‘student’. Working memory is so crucial and forms the foundation of a childs learning.

The content was interesting and beneficial to me as a classroom teacher, as it clearly illustrated the correlation between students finding learning challenging, and poor working memory. Strategies to support these students with their learning were useful.

Extremely relevant to my teaching. The theory component, so that I can understand what my students go through was necessary and confronting at times. The strategies to employ to assist my students is very helpful.

Thought it was very informative. Loved the visuals & ideas. I’ve sat through other working memory “meetings” but this definitely helped me to a greater understanding of its impact.
