Working Memory and Studying

This is Not Course Content

What does Doolittle say about learning? How does it differ and agree with the Britt’s suggestions? Why does asking such question as you watch this video help you to learn?

Students should try to learn complex material in bite size chunks. The cognitive load is lessened if some of the knowledge and understanding can be offloaded out of working memory. That takes time to allow for the needed practice and repeated application. That can translate into mastering one chapter before moving on and spreading out your studies over the week rather than doing it one big bolus.
