CHAPTER 8: Information Processing and Memory
Transcript of CHAPTER 8: Information Processing and Memory
Devin Burns and Sydney Molina
Mechanisms of Change
: the process by which information gets stored in memory.
: the ability to process information with little or no effort.
: the creation of a new procedure for processing information.
: "knowing about knowing"
In your life experiences can you think of an example of any of these Mechanisms of Change?
"The retention of information over time."
Online Discussion Questions
1) Name something you always seem to have trouble remembering; which part of your working memory do you think is having trouble functioning when this happens, and what encoding method could you practice to improve this forgetfulness?
2) Of the three mechanisms of change proposed by Robert Siegler, which do you think is the most useful in information processing for children and why?
Information- Processing Approach
Children manipulate, monitor, and strategize about information.
Information processing improves as children get older.
What time in a child's life do you think information processing speed increases greatly?
The conscious repetition of information over time to increase the length of time information stays in memory.
Levels of processing theory
states that the processing of memory occurs on a continuum from shallow to deep, with deeper processing producing better memory.
The extensiveness of information processing involved in encoding.
The more organized information is the easier it is to remember.
Another way to elaborate information being received.
What type of encoding do you most often use when you are trying to memorize things?
Long Term Memory
Holds enormous amounts of information for long periods of time.
Holds information from the world for only an instant.
Short Term Memory
Information is retained for as long as 30 seconds.
Knowledge in the form of skills and cognitive operations.
Conscious recollection of information.
Retention of the "where" and "when".
Individual's general knowledge about the world.
describe that how information in a memory is organized and connected.
explain that when we construct information we fit it into categories that are already in our mind.
Fuzzy Trace Theory
states that there are two kinds of memory representations: verbatim memory trace and gist.
Serial Position Effect
is the principle that
is better for items at the beginning and end of a list.
Principle associations formed at the time of encoding are effective retrieval cues.
: lack of effective retrieval cues.
: We forget because the wrong information gets in the way.
: The passage of time is responsible for forgetting
