Good learning most likely happens when pupils:

 

  • have appropriate and enough knowledge easily accessible in long term memory
  • can recall knowledge easily from long term memory
  • link the new knowledge in working memory to knowledge held in long term memory
  • are challenged by the content they are learning
  • are not cognitively overloaded
  • are not distracted, which can simply overload their working memory
  • pay attention to that which is to be learned
  • think about that which is to be learned

 

I would be really interested in additions to this list, or anything you disagree with.
