We often talk to students about how they need to spend more time when they study. We want them to be active readers - to apply what they're learning to their own lives and to ask themselves questions about the material ("How does this relate to other things I've learned about?"), but sometimes they don't quite understand how important this is to do. This deeper level of processing is important in terms of understanding and memory for what they're learning.
Here's an online activity/experiment I created using Google Slides, Forms and Spreadsheets. It's based on an activity professor Stephen Chew does in his class. I translated Dr. Chew's class activity into an online format. Those of you who are teaching an online class might find this especially useful. Give it a try (it's brief) and let me know what you think! And if you'd like to get a copy of the files used to create it, feel free to get in touch: email@example.com
CLICK HERE to participate in this brief online activity which will show your students how important it is to use deeper levels of processing when they study for their tests. Feel free to share this link with your students.
NOTE: you can also get a copy of this study to use for your class! The results of this study are sent to a Google Spreadsheet in my Google account. If you'd like to use this for your class and gather your own data from students, free free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
