….Back to cognitive learning :)

Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Slow Hand (Conway Twitty)
Topic: Literature Review

After being warned of cognitive load theory from John, I didn’t want to touch it with a 10 ft barge pool, however, we (James, Doug and myself) are stuck on how to actually collect usable data for my study. However, James and Doug suggested that I return to literature on how data were collected for studies that were similar to mine and the only ones I remember were the cognitive load theory ones by Renkl and Atkinson (fading steps in problem solving ) and the papers by Sweller (prior knowledge in maths) are helping me to consider the methodology. One of the things I was considering that I could teach students linear programming in the OU and see how that works with linear programming – but not sure if there is anyone motivated to learn it!
