@Espenel that’s a longer response than I have time for at the moment, but I will try to write one soon.

@berniedodge Any thoughts on the validity of “The Forgetting Curve” research? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forgettin… Discussing it with @Espenel

via Twitter Web Client

@Espenel Experiences as a teacher can certainly be valid & important too… but that’s different than citing a research study.

@Espenel This gets to issues Neil Postman highlighted well in his excellent book “Teaching As a Subversive Activity” amazon.com/Teaching-Subve…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Espenel

@Espenel Simplification can be fine but my issue in this case is questioning the origin of the alleged “research studies.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Espenel

@Espenel Thanks for sharing that link. I’d recommend following up further with @vanweringh on the original source(s) for those graphics.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Espenel

@Espenel almost. It’s like a student writing on a research paper, “My source is Google.” That’s not specific enough.

@Espenel there are tons of valid research studies done on retention & learning, so it’s important to question claims that don’t cite any

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to Espenel

@Espenel what is the link where you obtained this graphic? We can use a reverse Google image search to find where it is posted online

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to Espenel

@Espenel it references other root domains but doesn’t cite any specific studies or authors that can be checked / verified

via Mobile Web (M5) in reply to Espenel

@Espenel I recommend finding actual referenced research studies. This infographic looks appealing but says “source is Wikipedia” :-(
