In the context of “forgetting” information, use the information presented in this week's readings to answer the following questions:

    • How do you define or interpret the term “forget?”
    • What, in your opinion, are the reasons for you to forget or fail to remember important information? When you forget, is it forever? If not, how long is the “amnesia?
    • What, in your opinion, are the reasons for you to misremember information?
    • What factors play an important role in modifying or creating false memories?
  • How good are you at judging the accuracy of your own memories? Is metamemory impacted by the type of memory in question (personal, professional, or technical)?

Remember to read my initial post on this topic!!

Instructor Notes

Hi Class:

In the context of “forgetting” information, be sure to address each of following:

  • How do you define or interpret the term “forget?”
  • What, in your opinion, are the reasons for you to forget or fail to remember important information? When you forget, is it forever? If not, how long is the “amnesia?” You can find some great information on this by reading the Week-4 Lecture: see the information box titled “Why do we forget” under the heading of Forgetting.

Under this area make sure that you address each of the following:

    • Encoding
    • Retrieval Issues
    • Repression
    • Decay
    • Interference: Both Types
      • Retroactive
      • Proactive
  • What are the reasons for you to misremember information?
  • What factors play an important role in modifying or creating false memories?

     

    • According to the lecture “in order to discuss a past memory, it has to be brought into working memory. When you are thinking about specific aspects of the memory and questions and comments are made, those comments can impact the way you consider your own memory. This process of activating and reactivating memories can actually distort them and insert subtle, or not so subtle, changes in the details of the memory. These distortions can actually produce false memories, that is, memories that never happened.” What other factors might play a role here? The text has many examples!

  • How good are you at judging the accuracy of your own memories? Is meta-memory impacted by the type of memory in question (personal, professional, or technical)?

The text has some very good information on this topic.
