Remembering academic content should be unconscious and emotional. Focus should be on human behavior rather than technology.
We continue to force our children to read, write and listen to remember academic content. But Learning and Remembering academic content are two different actions. You cannot force the same method as learning to remember academic content. We should allow individual kid to store the content in their brain as they like. My thought process is to leverage the behavior involved during Design & Art process to remember easily. You can remember an art easier than a chunk of text. Once a kid completes the learning process, we should allow them to express their emotions in the form of Art and Design which would allow them to create a strong neural connections. Just Reading and Writing repeatedly is not going to help them to remember academic content. We know that this doesn't work as students continue to go blank during exams. Without good content memory, Students won't get confidence on their learning.
Without emotional experience, practice doesn't make perfect. So Remembering academic content should be done unconsciously. They should spend more time in Learning than remembering academic content.
Example : Once the teacher completes a chapter, students should be allowed to design based on the chapter content. In that way, learning is complete and remembering the content also made easy and unconscious.
