CON5.02 – Multiply Exposures + Variety of Ways = In-Depth Learning (Room A342)

Students are exposed to a large amount of information in college. Some of it is in the form of a “survey of information”, the information that the students find out about in a superficial manner or to pique their interest for further study. Other information needs to be used and retained because the students are to be continuous learners in their fields.  When information needs to be learned for in-depth purposes, a multimodal approach is more effective than a unimodal approach (Metiri Group, 2008). This presentation will explore the effects of music, movement, social opportunities, fine arts, and novelty on learning and what we have learned from brain research in connection with this learning. These concepts will be put into practice when participants use straw pipes to construct meaning of pitch, and then test and confirm this knowledge with other instruments. The presentation will conclude with the participants studying the circulatory system using drama, colors, and videos. These interactive activities will reinforce the concept that multiple exposures, in a variety of ways, help students retain learning in a meaningful manner.
