c. Of the strategies and techniques that you noted in (5a), which do you recommend given these implications?

Learning, Working Memory, and Language

Learning and memory are so closely related that they are often used synonymously despite there being major differences between the two. Learning is the acquisition of knowledge through experiences or being taught while memory is how the mind stores and retrieves information. To learn, memory is essential because it enables you to build on stored information while memory is nothing short of the accumulation of learned processes. For example a new language is acquired through studying, but in order to actually speak it you are using memory to retrieve the words that you have learned. To this point, memory and learning are interdependent.

In a school setting a student’s ability to retain information is critical to the acquisition of more knowledge and skills. Students with learning disabilities often have academic problems because of deficits in working memory (WM). Not surprisingly, WM is positively correlated to successful learning and student academic achievement. Most students without deficits in working memory are able to successfully respond to classroom instruction. Children struggling with remembering facts often struggle recalling details which they must know to pass exams. For children who struggle with short-term memory retention there are various strategies that can be utilized to improve these problems. Among these strategies are language techniques to help permeate concepts to memory. I will examine effective language strategies for short term retention of knowledge in children with learning disabilities.

Mnemonics is a learning strategy that aids memory retention. In education, especially in early childhood song mnemonics are commonly used to assist children in understanding concepts in a meaningful way. Song, has been employed as a learning tool in some academic settings due to its memory enhancement potential with the ability to engage. Perhaps the most common mnemonic device known is the ABC song in which students use song to remember the 26 character alphabet.
