Cognitive Load Theory: Making learning more effective

Cognitive Load Theory: Making learning more effective | Instructional design | Scoop.it
Cognitive Load Theory builds upon the widely accepted model of human information processing shown in Figure 1 (this was published by Richard Atkinson and Richard Shiffrin in 1968.)

It describes the process as having three main parts: sensory memory, working memory and long-term memory. Since then, many researchers have added to our understanding of this concept, but the basic model remains the same.

Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | Instructional design | Scoop.it

It is a myth that we operate under a set of oppressive bureaucratic constraints. In reality, teachers have a great deal of autonomy in the work they chose to do in their classrooms. In most cases it is our culture that provides the constraints. For individual teachers, trying out new practices and pedagogy is risky business and both our culture, and our reliance on hierarchy, provide the ideal barriers for change not to occur. As Pogo pointed out long ago, “we have met the enemy and it is us.” http://www.cea-ace.ca/blog/brian-harrison/2013/09/5/stop-asking-permission-change

Educational psychology has focused on the concepts of learned helplessness and more currently growth-fixed mindsets as a way to explain how and why students give up in the classroom setting.  These ideas can also be applied to educators in this day of forced standardization, testing, scripted curriculum, and school initiatives.

Teachers will be more diverse learning agents in the future. Many will become more specialised and micro-credentials will increasingly show mastery. 

Christophe Chambet-Falquet's curator insight, September 7, 2015 6:02 AM

How to deal with people (like me) who develop their own skills ? Companies need to have bright vision of who knows what to organize work. As Intelligence (faculty of understanding) will become a precious asset, diplomas and certificates will no longer be as easy to value as they were... What about micro-credentials ?
