Bingo!: An Engaging Activity for Learning Physiological Terms in Psychology
Vanags, Thea; George, Amanda M.; Grace, Diana M.; Brown, Patricia M.
Teaching of Psychology, v39 n1 p29-33 Jan 2012
Brain Bingo is a tutorial activity for helping undergraduate psychology students learn complex physiological terms. In two experiments, the authors tested pretest and posttest knowledge, and in Experiment 2, the authors tested retention after 5 weeks. In Experiment 1 (n = 41), the experimental group (Brain Bingo) recalled more terms than the control group (standard tutorial activities). In Experiment 2 (n = 107), control and experimental groups did the Brain Bingo activity, but only the experimental group received feedback during the activity. Both groups recalled more terms at posttest and follow-up than at pretest, and the experimental group outperformed the control group at both time points. Brain Bingo, particularly with feedback, is a useful activity for learning physiological terminology. (Contains 1 figure.)
