It's interesting how, if we shift the perspective from learning to teaching, we end up with similar rules, i.e. engage/attract the learner's attention, use visuals to aid understanding/retention and build on the learner's prior knowledge to aid transfer. I was surprised at the power of the picture.

The power of pictures - part 2

Clive on Learning

The mind would rather be fully occupied so it looks for something to take up the other 80% of its attention."

Not All Micro-Learning is Created Equal

ej4 eLearning

Micro-learning allows a continual stream of short, engaging learning opportunities that can compete with all the other distractions in our attention-strapped workplaces.
