Summary

• Use strategies like recall of prior knowledge and metacognition to help support memory encoding and retrieval.

• Some friction is necessary in learning. Just telling them is too smooth, and won’t stick. Learners frequently need to engage with the material to retain it.

• Social interaction can be an effective way to add friction to learning.

• Whenever possible, show, don’t tell.

• The right content is less than you think it is, has enough detail but no more, and is relevant to the learners.

• Starting with or using counter-examples can be a good way to prevent misconceptions.

• Decide how much guidance you need to give your learners. Resist the urge to hold their hand at every moment.

• A successful learning experience should leave the learner feeling confident and successful—“like they invented calculus.”
