Many people experience short term memory problems and often forget simple things like forgetting where they put their keys, cell phone, or other small objects. They actually can overcome this memory problem with mnemonic techniques to increase memory.
According to Shine, mnemonic is a memory training method based on information from all senses. Starting from touch, sight, smell, hearing, and taste to form memories.
Have you ever noticed how a certain scent can alert you to someone or something from your past? That’s because information from your nose partially processed by the limbic system, part of the brain involved in memory and emotion.
The more senses involved when you’re having an event, the more likely you will remember it. Not more mad or ridiculous the event you experience, you also will remember it easier.
Mnemonic strategy is a memorizing using a memory aid to remember information by creating a formula or expression, or connecting words, ideas, and fantasies. There many types of mnemonic strategy, here they are:
Constructing the image of an object that will be remembered. Then imagining and storing it in a location identified. The word ‘loci’ itself is the plural of the word ‘locus’, meaning place.
In this case, the names of cities, roads, famous buildings, can be used to place words and terms that are more or less relevant in the sense of having similar characteristics in the state. Example: using the name of the capital of the United States to remember the name of the country’s first president, George Washington.
Rhymes are made in such a way that it consists of words and terms that should be remembered. Rhyme would have better effects if given notes that can be sung. Song of kindergarten children that contains moral messages can be taken as an example of mnemonics forming.
Consisting of the first letters of a name or term that should be remembered. For example, if a student is going to make it easier to remember the name of the Prophet Adam, Noah, Abraham and Moses, can be shortened with ANAM. Making the abbreviations should be done in such a way as to attract and have a distinct impression.
Keyword systems are usually engineered specifically for learning foreign words and terms, and seems quite effective for teaching foreign languages, English for example.
These systems form a list of words consisting of the following elements: 1) foreign words, 2) key words, the local language words that at least the first syllable to have a voice/pronunciation is similar the word being studied; 3) the meanings of foreign words.
Peg word system
