  • Cognitivism
  • Cognitivism Defined The mind is a “black box” to be opened and understood. Mentally processing information allows it to be transferred to the memory, and thereby „learned‟.
  • History of Cognitivism Behaviourism Gestalt Theory Cognitivism Jean Piaget -people as active processors - learning in distinct stages Vygostsky - Zone of Proximal Development - language & thought develop independently
  • Memory
  • Design of eLearning An approach for cognitive learning: Analyse course->break into smaller units Sequence units hierarchically -> learning requires mastery of previous units “Chunking” units -> same process at unit level
  • Application to eLearning • • • — Maximize on types of sensory input for more info — Use graphic formats to organize information — Encourage reflection so students think about their • learning process — Allow students to revisit information to improve memory
