How To Leverage The Full Potential Of Spaced Practice For Learning
It’s well known that “cramming” for an exam leads to cognitive overload. Breaking information into easily digestible bits and reinforcing knowledge over time simply makes the information stick. So, how can you implement spaced practice for learning to maximize training effectiveness? This eBook shows you how to apply the old adage of “practice makes perfect” in your L&D program.
Tapping Into The Power Of Spaced Practice
The human mind can only soak up so much information before it starts to overflow. This is why spaced practice is the ideal approach. Learners have the opportunity to retrieve bits of info or periodically refresh certain skills before the forgetting curve hits. They can also go at their own pace instead of trying to tax their working memory and contend with information overwhelm. Spaced practice makes the learning process more manageable since every member of your audience is able to actively recall knowledge and apply it in real-world situations.
