Types of Memory

Researchers distinguish between recognition and recall memory. Recognition memory tasks require individuals to indicate whether they have encountered a stimulus (such as a picture or a word) before. Recall memory tasks require participants to retrieve previously learned information. For example, individuals might be asked to produce a series of actions they have seen before or to say a list of words they have heard before.

    The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences.

    Loris Malaguzzi (1920–1994)
