From ‘learning to improve your kissing technique’ to ‘learning to train your brain to be smarter’, as though all learning involves the architecture of human cognition in the same ways. At Kadenze, there has been intense experimentation about how this method of teaching can be adapted for the online learner by addressing the question, “Can skills be learned effectively in the absence of studio sweat?”.

The Secret to Beating the Forgetting Curve

CourseArc

Doesn’t being exposed to a new fact or a new method automatically embed it in our memory, where we can retrieve it later at will? As it turns out, the answer is a decisive “no,” because that’s not how human brains are wired. After all, there’s only so much available space in our mental hard drives, so our brains are optimized to quickly recall what repetition and habit have proven to be “important” while everything else that seems less essential gets pushed aside.

Keeping Your Learners’ Attention: How Our Brain Decides What to Focus On

Learnkit

Candy Crush is calling our name… In John Medina’s book, Brain Rules , we learn how the brain works. The human brain has spotlights that switch our attention based on triggers sent from our senses. But the reality is, the brain cannot multitask. The human brain is a sequential processor, which means it can only focus on one task at a time. How do we apply this to elearning methods? A common concern arises when the topic of elearning comes up.

E-Learning Design Part 5: Learning through Creating (Blooms 21)

At CDSM, we draw on a range of theories – from the past and the present – to form the method and practice behind our award-winning e-learning. This is known as our ‘ pedagogy ’. As Wright asserts, “the more churn a brain experiences, the more likely it’s going to retain information,” and so asking a learner to begin with creating is a really effective way of getting those cerebral juices flowing.

How complex is learning?

What are the best methods for education? We flounder and stumble as we try to navigate a plethora of educational theories and we become bogged down in prescribed institutional pedagogies, providing no more than glimpses of true education for our students. But do these methods and technologies actually live up to the promise? Comparatively, the human brain is highly complex, while the computer is a very simple tool. Learning is highly complex.

Activate the Braincells Through the Art of Storytelling

Magic EdTech

when we hear the bullet-point information only the language processing part of the brain gets activated but when a story is told to us, we start experiencing the events of the story leading to immersion in the content. As a result, not only the language processing parts but the visual cortex and the emotional reaction area of the brain too get activated. In fact, a story puts the whole brain to work. Evolution has wired our brain to think in the form of narratives.

How to Build the Best Adult Learner Experience for Online Training

MeetingOne on eLearning

Adult brains are fully-developed by our mid-20s, giving us greater ability to predict outcomes, devise more comprehensive plans, and make better decisions. Adults and children use different parts of their brains to complete tasks. Knowles intentionally differentiated it from pedagogy – or learning geared toward children. Andragogy is a pretty broad term that encompasses the methods and principles used in adult learning.
