Memory development and sensory resources

The best way to develop a student’s memory is through practise. Learners have preferences when it comes to memory development. Here are some resources that will help the visual learner, auditory learner, read-write learner and kinesthetic learner.

Memory development and sensory learners


Charts, posters, maps, and diagrams are visual images that help students remember important information with little effort. Students can stick these around their bedrooms and teachers can place them in the classroom. Since the images are usually in their faces all the time it becomes part of their long-term memory.


Voice recorders help students to read their notes once and listen to it a million times just like an overplayed song on the radio. Videos on lessons appeal to visual and auditory senses at the same time. If viewed regularly, the information will definitely be memorised. Songs about a particular topic played repeatedly can definitely get imprinted in the conscience.


Books, journals, essays, blogs and websites are great for read-write memory development. Any platform that offers information for students to read notes over and over are ideal resources for memory development. Students who enjoy reading may also like to write about what they’ve read in reviews, reports, summaries and essays.


Skits, role playing, dramatisations and games allow memory development. Students must rehearse scripts, character roles, and memorise the rules and objectives of games.
