Importance of PRIMED
Learning's front entrance
About 2 seconds
Messages go through "recoding"
Abbreviating & condensing incoming information
Visual, verbal, sequential
Information rests here; few minutes - hours
Holding together parts of ideas, stories, concepts while they develop
Place for ideas to gel
Opportunities for processing
Warehouse for knowledge & skills
Filing for later use; consolidation
Pairs, procedures, categories, rules & familiar patterns
Model how to show ways for students to organize & access
"Procedural learning sytem is learning how to do something and learning it to the point where it's automatic."
Poor automaticy in routine skills, results in slower completion and less efficiency with routine tasks.
These students often innovate & experiment with routines & procedures, often seeking/finding a new & better way of doing something.
Students with strong procedural learning abilities, quickly learn to perform tasks in just the way they were taught...
They perform without much thought reflection; less need, desire to innovate.

What makes Sir Richard Branson and Bill Gates successful businessmen? According to Professor Julie Logan, it could be the link she's found between entrepreneurship and dyslexia. Her research shows entrepreneurs in the UK are twice as likely to be dyslexic as the general person in the population and three times as likely in the US. Indeed, 19 per cent of UK entrepreneurs are dyslexic compared to just one per cent of corporate managers.
