Informational Processing, from lesson 3.04 talks about 3 different types of processing. They are called, Visual, Acoustic, and Semantic. With visual processing, you processing things such as pictures or visual memories whilst learning. An example of this in my own life would be when I see pictures in a textbook, I process them as key points so that if a test had that picture on it, I’d remember that picture and know what it’s about or what information it 's towards regarding the test.

They are called, Long term memory and Short term memory/working memory.

An example of this in my life would be, remembering knowledge that I first learned in school and still being able to remember it, such as my multiplication table. The second one, Short term memory/working memory would be used when you are only remembering some information and using it for a short time frame. Working memory would be when you are using both short term and long term to do sudden actions. An example of using short term memory in my life would be when I’m going to a place and I have to remember the address and then I use it in my GPS, but then I don’t really remember it after a couple of hours. This would also be an example of working memory because I would use my long term memory to help keep that address locked in my head until I don’t need to use it
