The One About Effective Memory Strategies for Students

Memory Athletes use techniques and tricks that enable them to remember long lists of information. Research shows that students who use memory strategies perform better academically, because these strategies help expand working memory and access long term memory. In this episode we sat down with 4x USA Memory Champion, author, and mountaineer, Nelson Delllis. Nelson wrote the book, "Memory Superpowers", that helps readers learn the secrets to remembering everything from the world capitals to the elements of the periodic table to speeches and soliloquies.

The One About Making Math Easier

Welcome to Season 3 of School Dazed!  Many of us grew up believing that we didn't have math minds. Our guest would argue that educators have "taken the language of math and abstracted it beyond recognition, and that's why kids are confused." Dr. Randy Palisoc is 6th grade math teacher and in his TED Talk, "Math Isn't Hard, It's A Language" he explains how math can be made accessible for all students.
