The Pausing Principle: Increasing the Efficiency of Memory for Ongoing Events.
Di Vesta, Francis J.; Smith, Deborah A.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v4 n3 p288-96 Jul 1979
The effectiveness of pausing for learning from lectures was investigated. Pause location and kind of activity conducted during the pause were varied. Free-recall and cued-recall tests were administered immediately after the lecture and two weeks later. Interspersed pauses coupled with group discussion was the most efficient procedure. (Author/RD)
