KnowledgeOne

Cognitive bias is a form of thinking that appears to be erroneously based on logical and rational reasoning, leading to biased analysis and judgments. The strategies of the S2 were studied in the 20th century by Jean Piaget (1896-1980), who hypothesized that, as a result of cognitive development, this rational system — called “logical-mathematical” in Piaget’s theory — took precedence over the “illogical” system, in adulthood.

Mind the Gaps

The ARCS model of Motivational Design Theories (attention, relevance, confidence, and satisfaction) has been the gold standard for how to promote and sustain motivation in learning since the 80s, when it was developed by John Keller, professor of instructional systems and educational psychology at the University of Florida. Motivation happens when learners perceive value and acknowledge a potential knowledge gap. Learners should know where they stand in order to enhance motivation.
