What I found out about the working memory is the ability to hold information in our head and manipulate it mentally. This article was very interesting to me because I found out a lot of information about a student’s working memory. It’s so amazing how there are ways to detect a child’s progress. This article talks about children’s poor working memory in school and ways to approach children at early age. In this article, it states that, “However, the researchers identified that poor working memory is rarely identified by teachers, who often describe children with this problem as inattentive or as having lower levels of intelligence”. When I am in my classroom, this is something that I will not take likely. However, there will be students that are daydreamers, inattentive or underachieving that I will evaluate closely. It might just be that the individual student has a learning problem and needs special guidance. In fact, there are over thousands of children that suffer from poor working memory. I feel like as a teacher that we have a calling to help those in children in need. Another reason why this article was lifting to me was because research created new tools to detect low memory in children. One of the tools used is a combination of a checklist and computer programme that has been tested for several years through researchers. The check list and computer programme will assess children’s memory capacity in the classroom from as early as four years old. This will allow teachers to capture problems and will enable teachers to adopt new approaches to teaching. In the article, it states that “Early identification of these children will be a major step towards addressing under achievement. Its will mean teachers can adapt their methods to help the children’s learning before they fall too far behind their peers”. This is extremely important because teachers should catch these problems as early as possible before the student gets farther. Yes there is a cure!! Educators can stop and immediately help children at an early point in their lives. Because of the magnificent results, these tool have been used successfully around the world, and has been unified into other foreign languages to fit for other counties to be used. There are opportunities for students to achieve and be successful in school. It like the checklist called the Working Memory Rating Scale (WMRS), because it’s a great tool to identify children who they think may have a problem with working memory without subject them to a test. I like the idea about the checklist because instead of giving children a standardized paper and pencil test. The teacher can evaluate without it being noticeable on what they are gathering from the child. The computerized Automated Working Memory Assessment(AWMA) is a great tool to used with the children. I like how these tools would be so efficiently easy to use in the classroom. I just think about if I was in the classroom I had concerns about a child, I could get the child to do the computerized Automated working memory assessment in class. This tool will also help to manage the children’s working memory loads which will minimize the chances of children failing to complete tasks. This will help children to hear the instructions over again, and talk in simple short sentences by breaking down tasks into smaller chunks of information. These tools will be such advantage to teachers and will be helpful to both the teacher and in the long run the children.
