When children learn something well the first time, even if they do forget, relearning is easier. This month’s Science of Parenting podcast from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach examines how children learn and how teachers and parents can adapt teaching to fit learning and memory. It’s the final long-form podcast in the series.

Does the method of instruction have any influence on the ease of relearning? Is it easier to relearn if you are instructed in the same or a different way?
Todd – great question. I think the answer might be maybe. For some people it is helpful to relearn in the same way and from the same person. For others (myself included here) I often find it helpful to learn from a different person who teaches the subject/content in a little different manner. What about you?
