Several studies show that memory improves when more than one sense is stimulated at the same time. The ultimate expression of simultaneous and multimodal learning is learning by doing. When we learn by seeing and hearing, we remember 50% fourteen days later. But we remember 90% if we actually experience it. This means that simulations, such as role plays, are very effective in helping students learn new concepts.
Using multiple modalities is a way to add stimulation to student learning. Interactive approaches, such as Project/ Problem based learning, Role Play, Group work, Performing, Gamification assisted with the use of ICTS helps us to achieve the results of multimodal learning and enhanced learning outcomes.
