In each of the videos and factsheets we have discussed how teachers can support children’s working memory.

In this video, we discuss techniques that can be used by children and young people to gradually become independent in their strategy use. Professor Chris Jarrold, Dr Debbora Hall, Dr Liz Smith, and Dr Rachael Hayes discuss controversy around strategies, novel strategies, and how they can benefit children who are struggling.


The factsheet provides more detail on strategy use alongside references for the film and further reading.
