Working Memory for Educational Psychologists – New Resources launched
20 April 2015
A series of four films, games, and factsheets on working memory which explore recent work on working memory and classroom learning and behaviour.
Dr Debbora Hall and Professor Chris Jarrold have launched a series of four films, games, and factsheets which explore working memory in the classroom. The resources are aimed at Educational Psychologists, SENCOs, and specialist teachers, and were developed to provide cutting edge research into working memory and education in an easy to digest format. The resources largely focus on transferring knowledge from recent work by Professor Jarrold and colleagues, and were funded by an ESRC Knowledge Exchange Partnership between Dr Hall and Professor Jarrold, and Educational Psychologists at Bristol City Council and North Somerset Council, as well as the film production company microfilm. Partnership with Educational Psychologists helped to form the resources into truly useful material, which has been targeted directly towards their professional development needs. Input from the media production company helped to make the films and games into engaging and visually striking work, which has also provided microfilm with a first foothold on scientific film making.
