João Greno Brogueira's curator insight, April 1, 2013 12:53 AM

That's why communities of practice are a great tool to build a sense of belonging to a Learning Community. Without that e-Learning is a cold and artificial learning that requires a lot of self-discipline and willingness to learn (which is not easy to find in common students). Maybe that's why solutions like Blended-learning seem to be more balanced and ensure more successful learning.

Alan Baddeley - Working Memory | GoCognitive

Alan Baddeley - Working Memory | GoCognitive | English for Academic Purposes | Scoop.it

Dr. Alan Baddeley has been one of the leading researchers in the field of working memory. His model of working memory, published with Dr. Graham Hitch in 1972, has been one of the seminal models to guide research in memory. In his interview with goCognitive, Dr. Baddeley describes the different components of working memory and how their roles have changed over the years. Still an active researcher 40 years after the initial publication of the model, he has a unique perspective on trends in modern memory research. This goCognitive interview is of interest to anyone who is a student of memory and who wants an integrative perspective. It was recorded at the University of York in the fall of 2010 (funding by the National Science Foundation DUE-0942497).

Cristina Felea's insight:

Special treat for those interested in psychology or simmply in how their mind works!
