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.

Nuts and Bolts: Brain Bandwidth - Cognitive Load Theory and Instructional Design by Jane Bozarth - Learning Solutions Magazine , August 2, 2010 Designers often overload learners with information, hurting learning and learner motivation, and thereby undercutting the very thing we say we want to accomplish. designer can avoid this by understanding cognitive load theory and memory; in particular, the concepts of working memory and long term memory. Augmented Reality (12).

Brain activity in numbers


Our brain is never really at rest. This is what neuroscientists have uncovered by discovering the functioning of its so-called “default” network, which is activated in a way that is opposite to the executive network that manages our high-level cognitive processes.
