Contexts By Cognitions

Clark Quinn

So, in my last post , I talked about exploring the links between cognitions on the one hand (situated, distributed, social), and contexts (aligning with how we think, work, & learn). The outcome of considering contexts by cognitions improved the outcomes, I think.

Clark Quinn

There are applications of cognitive science (including neuroscience, cognitive psychology, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, etc) to more areas of business than just L&D. The post Cognitive Business appeared first on Learnlets. One of my mantras is that organizations need to align better with how we think, work, and learn.

Cogitating cognition

Learning Rocks

It's strange, but every time I read anything about cognitive load it seems to be in a pure, old-fashioned, "words on a page" kind of context. So, I favour pages that are quite busy - not complex for the sake of it, but I try to use the space to ensure lots of information is on hand, if not actually presented all the time.
