Introducing classroom-based Working Memory interventions for children

MEMORY MATES WEBSITE LAUNCH

29 August 2017

Memory Mates is a classroom-based attention and working memory intervention program, which has been developed for primary-aged students, their teachers and parents. When using Memory Mates, students are taught and supported in using 10 key strategies focused on how they attend, learn and engage in classroom activities across all key learning areas (KLAs). Children are also encouraged to be self-reflective and employ some elements of metacognitive awareness of their own learning processes. Although Memory Mates focuses on the 'how' of improving attention and working memory, students' use of the strategies has also been associated with improved academic progress and achievements: the 'what' of learning. The Memory Mates materials have been developed from research by a team from the NSW Department of Education and The University of Sydney. The members of the team – Associate Professor Susan Colmar, Nash Davis and Linda Sheldon –  are all psychologists and teachers.
