Multi-channel collaborative memory method-woodmam

Memorizing difficult information is better when it is woven into a story. Self-made stories with plots, interesting and vivid images are easily remembered by the brain - the hard-to-remember information establishes a strong organic connection with the remaining content, and by remembering the content of the story, the hard-to-remember information that needs to be remembered is also remembered.

  In order to easily and happily remember seven boring and irrelevant foreign words: wind, dust, blind man, sanshin, cat, mouse and barrel store, they made them into a story of "the wind blows the barrel store to make money": "On a windy day, dust flies all over the ground, and the dust flies into the eyes of pedestrians. Those who have dust in their eyes will become blind, and the number of blind people who live by playing sanshin is bound to increase. The cats were killed because they needed cat skins to make the sanshin, and the number of cats gradually decreased, and the number of rats increased, and the rats bit the barrels, and the sales of barrel stores increased."

  In China, people still make up stories to remember the Thirty-Six Stratagems. For example, the story of Tian Ji horse race is used to express in depth the essence of the ability of operations research to surprise and turn defeat into victory. After remembering this story, the wonders of operations research are also rooted in the mind of the memorizer.

  The ancients paid attention to the "three to" reading, the Song Dynasty scholar Zhu Xi in the "discipline of the school of vision" pointed out: "the heart is not in this, then the eyes do not see carefully, the heart and eyes are not dedicated, but only diffuse recitation, absolutely can not remember, remember also can not be long. Among the three to, the heart to the most urgent, the heart is to carry on, the eyes, the mouth is not?" Literary scholar Su Dongpo, in his many years of intellectual career, developed the habit of copying books. His copy of the book, often not to accumulate information, but to strengthen the memory of the contents of the book. The practice of these two sages was probably based on a profound experience of the good effect of synergetic mnemonics!

  The application of synergistic mnemonics to learning practice should be mainly reflected in combining listening, speaking, reading, writing, thinking and practical work. Multi-channel collaborative memory is an effective means of using multiple sensory organs to collaboratively remember difficult and important information.

  Psychological experiments have shown that information received through different sensory organs (transcribed from knowledge or experience or events or objects or the words and actions of people and animals, etc.) has a very different intensity of stimulation to the brain, and thus produces very different memory effects.

  The highest absorption of information for visual input, up to 83%.

  the second highest absorption rate for auditory input, 11%.

  The absorption rate for olfactory input was even lower, at 3.5%.

  Taste input had the lowest absorption rate of 1%.

  Although memory experts emphasize the importance of using all the sensory organs to remember, non-blind people always use their eyes more often to absorb most of the external information.

  One of the main advantages of transferring information into the brain through vision is that it allows the two hemispheres of the brain to work together, creating a "1+1>2" value-added memory effect; secondly, it highlights the hierarchy and cognitive depth, and can enhance memory by strengthening the details of the image, and can also give the image appropriate color to improve the visual transfer effect.

  According to some experiments, alternating the use of visual and auditory to receive the same information can highlight the memory effect: 65% can be remembered by combining visual and auditory; only 25% can be remembered by using visual alone; only 15% can be remembered by using auditory alone.

  The students were divided into three groups, and the students in group A were only told what was on the 10 paintings and were not allowed to look at the paintings; the students in group B were only allowed to look at the 10 paintings without explaining what was on the paintings; and the students in group C were both told what was on the paintings and were allowed to look at the 10 paintings. After the test, group A remembered 60%, group B remembered 70%, and group C remembered 86%.

  If the information to be remembered is incorporated into a movie or television program, which activates both visual and auditory energy, it can have a great effect on stimulating students' interest in learning and attracting their attention. Nowadays, many schools are using multimedia teaching methods, which are lively and interesting and can maximize students' motivation to learn and remember.

  In order to deepen the brain's impression of difficult and unfamiliar information, and to transform it from instantaneous short-term memory into long-term memory stored in the brain, multiple sensory organs can be used in concert: a combination of reading, listening and writing, and, if possible, touching, smelling and tasting. This approach can also be considered for large-scale review.

  During the day, you can take a small amount of time to practice the synergy of two or more sensory organs during leisure time, such as music dictation in an environment free of distracting sounds, listening carefully, mimeographing, and then repeatedly comparing; listen to a piece of music with full concentration, sing it after it is familiar, listen again, and sing it again, until listening and singing are united. The ability to memorize sound information within a limited period of time is unconsciously improved in this training. Mozart is said to have been diligent in this training since childhood, and when he was 14 years old, he listened to a mass by the Italian composer Allegri Gregory once, returned home, and wrote out the piece almost completely in silence. To train the eye, hand, mouth and brain to work together to memorize some important and difficult information, you can write it down with a pen after observing it visually, and read it aloud repeatedly until you can recite it. After that, then take the leisure time to constantly recite or recall or mimeograph; for the good things that can be eaten, you can inspect carefully, chew, taste slowly, chew repeatedly, and then synthesize and generalize thinking, etc.

  (15) Help memory by association and imagination

  The best choice to resist forgetfulness is to let your imagination help you remember. The essence of using associative imagination to help memory is to make the newly remembered information linked with the original information in the brain storage in the form of structure through clever association and rich imagination, just like a fish being caught on a hook and sinking into the "mind" together. When you need to use it, just lift the hook and the fish will appear in your mind.

  Wonderful fantasy

  In order to remember the physical law that "sound cannot travel in a vacuum, but heat can", someone, through creative imagination and fantasy, turned it into the following story.

  A mother and daughter kissing in a vacuum cannot hear the sound, but can transmit the heat from the friction of their lips.

  The left hemisphere of the human brain is in charge of logical (scientific) thinking and the right hemisphere is in charge of figurative (artistic) thinking, but some people often confuse the functions of the two in their memory. For those who have seen or heard of the movie "Zorro", it is enough to associate logical thinking with Zorro, the main character in this movie, to remember - when one thinks of Zorro, the hero (some people call "Zorro" the locus of memory), one recalls logical thinking and the left hemisphere of the brain that governs it, and also It can also be assumed that figurative thinking is governed by the right hemisphere brain. One way or another, the main functions of the two hemispheres of the brain are soon remembered firmly.
