Research on Drawing and Learning
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Did you know that research shows that drawing when learning can boost memory recall? Sometimes when we think of ways to help students with their memory we focus on strategies such as:
- repeating and rehearsing
- note taking
- reading out loud
- enactment (associate the information with an action)
These strategies are evidence based but it is not always realistic that students can use them in a large classrooms. Have you ever considered drawing to help with learning new material?
