The Spacing Effect: Harnessing the Power of Spaced Practice for Learning That Sticks
The literature that learning professionals can draw on to inform their practice is huge and varied. Over the last two and a half millennia, many of the world’s leading thinkers have contributed to it and a huge amount of scientific research has gone into the subject.
But the one principle that almost everyone can agree on (tested and proven time and again by the experimental observation) is the spacing effect.
Memory is fundamental to learning and following Ebbinghaus’s research into the famous forgetting curve, spaced practice came to be the solution.
Drawing on an earlier paper by Donald Clark and the theory behind spaced practice, this whitepaper, written for Learning Pool by John Helmer, demonstrates how this now well-established knowledge about the workings of memory can be applied in practical situations using modern learning technology.
