Some points you could easily make...
- short term memory can encode information visually, acoustically and semantically but only 5 - 9 items
- information can be "chunked" in the short term memory increasing the capacity that can be learnt - grouped capital cities
- rehearsal retains information, moves into the long-term memory
- rehearsed information is encoded semantically (through meaning) - will retain capital cities through groups more
Hope this helps
