6 strategies you may not be using to reduce cognitive load
from The eLearning Coach
In a complex world, it's easy to get overwhelmed by a deluge of complex information. This shouldn't be surprising, as working memory (our mental work space), has a limited capacity for processing information. If the demands placed on working memory, known as cognitive load, are too high, learners may give up in frustration or fail to comprehend. According to cognitive load theory, some inherent cognitive load must occur during the process of learning. In fact, learners can benefit from friction, difficulties and challenge.
