“Working memory is the #1 predictor of learning success.”
Working memory is the term most frequently used when referring to the limited capacity part of the human memory system. The part which temporarily stores and manipulates information required to service cognitive tasks such as: learning, reasoning and comprehension. One in ten people struggle with poor working memory.
According to leading researcher Dr. Tracy Alloway, "working memory is the number one predictor of learning success. Impairments in working memory are closely associated with learning deficits, as well as daily classroom activities. Working memory deficits are cumulative and the gap in academic performance widens as the students get older. We need to teach them how to apply memory strategies on their own to prevent this".
This means that in the absence of identifying working memory deficits and being taught appropriate memory strategies and meta-awareness skills. Individuals with poor working memory may never develop the ability to self-regulate their learning. In most cases will continue to underachieve into adulthood, miss potential career opportunities, develop issues relating to low self-esteem and self-confidence and fail to fulfill academic and career objectives.
