What do students remember?

After all is said and done, how much of what students learn in school do they remember?

In the classes I took with Nechama Leibowitz, she often said that students do not remember anything (if memory serves, her point was that teachers should spend more time teaching methods of study, rather than content).

In any case, for those of us who wonder about this, I thought that the "Five minute University" might be something to consider. See it at http://www.cs.washington.edu//info/videos/asx/5minuteU.asx
