There is a continuous transfer of of information between long-term memory and working memory—both retrieval and transfer.
Information is retrieved from long-term memory into working memory in order to make sense out of new [ information.
Information that we attend to and integrate into our knowledge structures is transferred or encoded into long-term memory.
In studies with children, those
who have a poor ability to store material over brief periods of time (difficulties with working memory) fail to progress normally in tasks related to literacy.
An individual’s developmental age and level of expertise probably account for differences in working memory. For example, facilitating learning can be helpful for novices but detrimental to experts. See Novice Versus Expert Design Strategies.. ]
