Description

Class Experience

This workshop focuses on the skill of Working Memory. Working Memory is the thinking skill that focuses on memory-in-action: the ability to remember and use relevant information while in the middle of an activity. For example, a child is using their Working Memory as they recall the steps of a recipe while cooking a favorite meal. When playing games, players are asked to learn and repeatedly recall information in order to succeed and advance to higher levels. Playing games can help improve Working Memory by practicing this skill while in the midst of a fun and immersive experience.

In this class, we will use the game and the app to practice creating and using the technique of mnemonic clues to help us remember important information. 
The key to building a skill like working memory is practice, practice, practice! At the end of class, we will talk about how explorers can keep working on working memory after class. We highly encourage guardians to share this practice with the student. 
Each student will need a mobile device with both the game and the app downloaded.

It is often easiest for a student to access the class on a separate device from the one they will use to play the game. If your student will be using the same device to both play and connect wit, it is best to bring an egg timer or instruct them how to use the time on their device so they will return from playing the game on time.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
