Child Psychology

If you take the information-processing view of cognitive development, you would say that

a. typing on a computer keyboard is the equivalent of short-term memory
b. thinking and data processing are similar, but not actually related.
c. storing information to a hard drive is the equivalent of long-term memory.
d. placing information in RAM memory is like sensory memory.

This one I am totally confused with.

    A. is definitely wrong -- keyboarding skills are lodged in our long term memory.

    B. is also wrong. Thinking and data processing have nothing to do with each other.

    C. This looks good.

    D. Check out these sites to see if this might be the answer.

    I agree with Ms. Sue. Short-term memory vanishes in 1-20 seconds if not rehearsed. Sensory memory only lasts for a second or two.
