Drawing to learn

A new study confirms…

If you need to remember something, then make a drawing!

As outlined in the article ‘Need to remember something? Better draw it, study finds‘  and argued in Wammes et al.’s (2016) study on ‘The drawing effect‘:

‘…drawing pictures of information that needs to be remembered is a strong and reliable strategy to enhance memory.’

So… Why not make drawings of key concepts and theories with your mentees?!? – to prepare them for coursework and exams.
