3 cognitive biases to know in education


In a previous article , we discussed the Pygmalion effect, a cognitive bias that can interfere with the teacher-learner relationship and have significant effects on learning. Cognitive bias, in short. In reality, we are all equally susceptible to being fooled by cognitive biases.

While most of us know Bloom’s taxonomy but for the benefit of others, Bloom’s Taxonomy is the systematic classification of the processes of thinking and learning.Benjamin Bloom and his fellow educationists identified three dimensions of educational activities: Cognitive (Knowledge), skills (psychomotor) and Attitude. Blooms taxonomy is relevant in the cognitive domain.It Evaluate: Evaluating refers to making judgement about the value of the idea.

Simplifying Cognitive Load Theory. Adam Boxer ( @adamboxer1 ) takes a stab and simplifying the cognitive load theory. John Sweller’s Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) may be the single most important thing for teachers to know, but it was not necessarily designed with teachers in mind. The product of lab-based randomized controlled trials, it is a theory from the specific academic discipline of Cognitive Science. Be sure to catch here point about reducing “cognitive leaks”.

A Brief History of Instructional Design

Origin Learning

A large number of psychologists and educational researchers were summoned to develop training materials , as well as to apply their knowledge of evaluation to assess trainees’ skills. He identified three principal domains of learning: Cognitive (what one knows or thinks), Psychomotor (what one does, physically) and Affective (what one feels, or what attitudes one has). Methods were being evaluated as to how the PC could be used in an academic and interactive context.

The architect imagines the flow of people, places of rest, and creatively evaluates how to match the requirements with the available space (and budget). Here is someone envisioning the cognitive (and aesthetic) flow the learner will go through. I note that in the 70:20:10 process of Arets, Jennings, and Heijnen, learning architect is a role that sits between doing the analysis and implementing the solution. I was just reflecting on the different job labels there are.

Embracing A Principle-Based Model of Instructional Design

eLearning Brothers

As an instructional designer, I’ve often wondered why so many organizations place such a heavy emphasis on adhering to instructional design processes such as ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, and Evaluation) or SAM (Successive Approximation Model), when the reality is that many of the problems that we address with effective instructional designs are ill-structured and require much more complex problem solving-strategies than what is represented in these processes.

3 Basic steps to take when transferring training online


Here are three basic steps to take when transferring training online: Run an in-depth analysis of the existing content. In order to avoid cognitive overload, you should divide the relevant information into ‘basic’ and ‘additional’.

In online learning, the stages are typically: Analysis, Design, Development, Deploy and Evaluate. Cognitive Overload. Cognitive overload occurs when a learner is challenged with learning or memorising too much information at once. There are methods to minimising cognitive overload such as: keeping your learning simple. It can be easy to get lost in the jargon and acronyms that can dominate the chat of our industry.

Experiential learning that is immediately applicable to the learner’s job situation cognitively engages users, strengthen retention, and actually translates into observable behavior and performance enhancement.

Rethinking Learning Styles

Clark Quinn

To do this, I looked long and hard at learning styles, including Jonassen & Grabowksi’s uncritical compendium, and (the other) John Carroll’s Cognitive Factor Analysis research. That became one of our principles when I challenged our psychometrician and our senior cognitive scientist to argue contrary, and they agreed with me.

Some of the insights gleaned from her adds depth to my analysis. I often refer to this sense-making model because it provides a simple yet powerful heuristic for evaluating where we stand in relation to other contexts. Innovating and creating value in this context require a coming together of cognitively diverse individuals who come with varied experiences and different ways of seeing. Cognitive diversity is what helps us to make sense in the Complex zone.

Games Teach!

Kapp Notes

One of the studies cited by Dr. Richard Clark against the use of games for learning is also cited by myself in my book is the meta-analysis (study of studies) by Robert Hays of the Naval Air Warfare center Training System Division who conducted a review of the literature in 2005. He examined 274 documents related to the design, use and evaluation of games. The second “claim,” that games enhance cognitive learning, continues to be supported.
