Abstract

The purpose of this study was to reveal the effect of
teaching science using strategies that stimulate neural
branching on visuospatial and verbal working memory
capacities. The study sample consisted of (197) students
divided into two experimental groups and a control group. The
first experimental group was taught using strategies that
stimulate neural branching: hypothetical thinking, application
of symbol systems, analysis of point view, and web analysis,
while the second experimental group was taught using the
same strategies supported by technology. However, the control
group was taught using conventional instruction. To answer
the research questions "odd one out "and "recall listening
span" tests were used. The results showed significant
differences in the visuospatial working memory capacity in
favor of the experimental groups. There were no significant
differences between the groups in the verbal working memory
