Make learning tasks memorable to increase your long-term memory of the content! Here's a list of ideas on how to do that by using free and innovative technology, metacognitive strategies, and creativity.
1. Use Google Drawings to create an infographic. Why? Visuals can help you remember content. It's a free app.
2. Use Google Sites or O-Space to create a Website, portfolio, or workspace for an individual or group project.
3. Reflection helps you remember the lesson. Many Otis Faculty ask you to reflect on your learning. But you can use your e-portfolio or blog software to reflect on your own.
4. Create a Twitter-based electronic newsletter on your major or course topic to learn from experts tweeting about it. Why? A newsletter will help you to continue your learning with each weekly update, and you can access the archive for past articles!
5. Use metacognitive strategies to increase the amount you learn. Metacognition means that you are hyperaware of your thought process.
