Research on Studying

UPTDATED: Now with the LINK! (Sorry about that…)

I know that this was linked to last week in one of the CCC Press emails, and I know it’s been on top of the NY Times articles all week (and so a lot of people have probably already read it), and I know I’ve been linking a lot of NY Times stuff lately, but STILL…it’s really good.

From the article:

In recent years, cognitive scientists have shown that a few simple techniques can reliably improve what matters most: how much a student learns from studying.The findings can help anyone, from a fourth grader doing long division to a retiree taking on a new language. But they directly contradict much of the common wisdom about good study habits, and they have not caught on.

There’s good stuff here. Worth reading.
