2012 UK Schools Memory Champion is crowned  

Tony Buzan Co-founder of the World Memory Championships presents the award to Matthew at the Science Museum in London.

 

Matthew from Southlands High School, Chorley, Lancashire attended a memory training session in May and within two months became the UK Champion – along the way he memorised the exact order of a random sequence of 71 words.  

 

This year we are delighted to announce that Learning Performance headed by Roger Starbuck and his team of presenters are now organising the competition on behalf of the UK Schools Memory Championships.

 

Now in its sixth year, the UK Schools Memory Championship has established an enviable reputation for helping students acquire powerful mental skills that improve both learning and self-confidence. 

 

The competition tests the ability of students to memorise a series of word, random decimals and fictional dates. However, this is a measure of how well they have trained their working memory.

 

Memory and IQ

 

Researchers have found that working memory is a more powerful predictor of academic success than IQ.  One of their conclusions is that we should target our efforts in developing working memory skills in order to see the greatest gains in learning.

 

Working Memory and Fluid Intelligence

 

Fluid intelligence, as defined by researchers, is the ability to reason and to solve new problems independently of previously acquired knowledge.  It is considered one of the most important factors in learning and it is closely related to professional and educational success, especially in complex and demanding environments.

 

The researchers found that training the working memory led to an increase in fluid intelligence and also that the gains in intelligence depended on the amount of training: the more training, the more improvement.

 

Dominic O’Brien, who is an eight times winner of the Wolrd Memory Championships and co-founder of the Schools Memory Championships says. “Students learn how to memorise a sequence of unconnected data by engaging the whole of their brain in particular key functions such as logic and imagination. It’s a transferable skill. By training one’s working memory a student quickly learns how to learn and remember anything.”
