Title: Mnemonic study techniques and autobiographical memory
The purpose of the interactive micro-group laboratory is to present mnemonic study techniques regarding autobiographical memory. At a theoretical level we discuss issues related to the autobiographical memory we have for our lives and which is a special category of episodic memory. The mnemonic study techniques derive from the central control system of working memory regarding the processes of retrieving (1) information from long-term memory, participating in the coding (2) of new information, tuning (3) the phonological circuit and the visual-spatial notebook. Autobiographical memory, as a mnemonic technique, distributes the available cognitive resources, controls, and shifts attention. Also, it selects the appropriate strategies for performing the mental work that the student is engaged in, and incorporates information from different sources. On a practical level we will work with exercises of awareness of the individual way of studying with emphasis on the central control system of both verbal and auditory information of the lessons from the phonological circuit and the visual and spatial information in the amphitheater or the laboratory from the visual-spatial notebook. Emphasis will be placed on the audio information received by students through distance learning in the period of social distancing due to the pandemic.
