Information Processing Theory (IPT)

-Sensory pattern recognition> short-term memory (STM)> encoding techniques > long-term memory (LTM)
-To help convert information to long-term memory encoding techniques must be used:
*chunking
*visualization
*imaging
*elaboration
*repeating
*contexting
-COVER: Connection, Organization, Visualization, Elaboration, Rehearsal (brings more deep relevance)
-Memory made up of: Taxon memory system (rote memorization as in Reading or History), Locale memory system (learning the bigger picture needed in Math or Science), and the brain seeking connections in the information
