Cognitive Load Theory and Instructional Design

Cognitive Load Theory and Instructional Design | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Understanding the basics of the Cognitive Load Theory and applying them to your instructional design is an absolute must, particularly if you want your learners to get the most out of the eLearning course you are creating. This guide will offer you a detailed look at Cognitive Load Theory, including how it can be applied in learning settings. Check the Cognitive Load Theory and Instructional Design article and presentation to find more.

Via Dan Kirsch, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

"Cognitive Load Theory suggests that learners can absorb and retain information effectively only if it is provided in such a way that it does not “overload” their mental capacity. In other words, our short term memory, or working memory, can only retain a certain amount of information simultaneously (rather than an infinite supply of data). "

Why Clay Shirky Banned Laptops, Tablets and Phones from His Classroom | Mediashift | PBS

Why Clay Shirky Banned Laptops, Tablets and Phones from His Classroom | Mediashift | PBS | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
I teach theory and practice of social media at NYU, and am an advocate and activist for the free culture movement, so I’m a pretty unlikely candidate for Internet censor, but I have just asked the students in my fall seminar to refrain from using laptops, tablets and phones in class.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

This is the most convincing argument "against" that I've seen yet.  I would add, though, that Shirky's style is one of collaborative inquiry where participation, discussion are the norm.  " I’m coming to see student focus as a collaborative process. It’s me and them working to create a classroom where the students who want to focus have the best shot at it, in a world increasingly hostile to that goal."

To RECOVER from (being late, not managing time well) is more instructive than the lowered grade.  To walk through the recovery by redoing the work, the student will better learn how to keep up.
