Association with Personal Experiences

Experience and Memorisation: The Influence of Personal Experiences in Learning

  • Use Sensory Cues: Incorporate sensory cues, such as smells, sounds, and textures, to enhance memory encoding and retrieval.
  • Use Visual Imagery: Utilise the power of visual imagery to create vivid mental pictures that aid in memory retention and recall.
  • Emotional Connections: Connect new information to personal experiences that evoke emotions, as emotional memories are often more memorable.
  • Contextual Learning: Learn in meaningful contexts that relate to personal experiences, as it enhances comprehension and memory consolidation.
  • Active Participation: Engage actively in the learning process by participating in discussions, hands-on activities, and real-life applications.
  • Reflection and Self-Relating: Reflect on personal experiences and relate them to the information being learned to create stronger memory associations.
  • Storytelling: Incorporate storytelling techniques to make the information more engaging and memorable.
  • Multi-Sensory Approach: Engage multiple senses, such as sight, hearing, and touch, to create a richer and more immersive learning experience.
  • Personalisation: Personalise the learning process by connecting the information to one’s own interests, goals, or values.
  • Association with Prior Knowledge: Connect new information to existing knowledge and personal experiences to facilitate understanding and memory recall.
