Struggling to revise? Mnemonics explained

Struggling to revise? Remember important facts and linking ideas? The idea of “The Forgetting Curve” was pioneered by Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885 who discovered that without frequent review of the information that we are trying to remember, we will forget half of what we learned within the hour, and people forget 40 percent of what they learn after the first 20 minutes and retain only 30 percent of the information after six days.

Why share a video about mnemonics? It’s because I’m studying a course on dyslexia and mnemonics is an effective way of linking words or symbols to remember facts. This video is courtesy of Western Sydney University via YouTube.
