Poor digital leadership will see universities struggle to attract students | Learning and teaching | Scoop.it
A survey of 1,000 16-24 year olds, commissioned by Jisc, found that three quarters (75%) of higher education students surveyed believe that having staff with the appropriate digital skills is an important factor when choosing a university. 99% of students think that technology is becoming increasingly important in education, while 62% believe technology keeps them more engaged.

What is Cognitive Learning?

What is Cognitive Learning? | Learning and teaching | Scoop.it
Derived from Cognition, Oxford Learning explains "Cognitive Learning" as the function based on how a person processes and reasons information. It revolves around many factors, including problem-solving skills, memory retention, thinking skills and the perception of learned material.

The Cognitive Learning Theory explains why the brain is the most incredible network of information processing and interpretation in the body as we learn things.

When we say the word “learning” it is commonly identified with “to think using the brain”. This basic concept of learning is the main viewpoint in the Cognitive Learning Theory (CLT). The theory has been used to explain mental processes as they are influenced by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors, which eventually bring about learning in an individual.

Cognitive Learning Theory implies that the different processes concerning learning can be explained by analyzing the mental processes first. It posits that with effective cognitive processes, learning is easier and new information can be stored in the memory for a long time. On the other hand, ineffective cognitive processes result to learning difficulties that can be seen anytime during the lifetime of an individual.
