Stoplights and Sticky Notes


Just as we use sticky notes to prompt our own memory, the student brain uses
cognitive sticky notes to prompt the recall of classroom content. Some students
encounter barriers that put up a stoplight for learning. For the best student learning
outcomes, we need to create an environment that changes that red light to a green
light. John Almarode explores the recent research on how our brain learns how to
improve outcomes.
