The Art of Making Learning Stick: Understanding Retention and Retrieval

Research indicates that up to 75% of what we learn is forgotten within the first 48 hours. Why does this happen? Where does the information go? This fast-paced, 90-minute webinar helps teachers, parents, and pediatric therapists understand the process of turning exposure into true learning, and true learning into long-term gains. Explore how simple rehearsal and retrieval strategies can provide permanent gains with our students and clients. The presenter includes resources, games, and activities to aid in the process.
