What Is Rote Learning?
Rote learning is the memorisation of information by repetition. Examples of rote learning include memorising the alphabet, numbers, and multiplication tables. It is great for building a foundation for deeper learning of subject material, especially when your child is in primary school.

Examples include virtual field trips, quizzes, videos, presentations and so on.
