Learning Anxiety Disorder (LAD) is a new concept that emerged from one of my research projects. It is a derivative of Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) which is LAD's parent notion. The formational components of LAD include unwarranted self-consciousness, misplaced ego, shyness, anxiety, nervousness, and phobia for socially involved learning.
The effects of LAD manifest in strong aversion for learning and evasion of anything having the form of socially-involved learning; also included are depleted interest in learning adventures, unsettling anxiety and nervousness that often result in significant diminution of cognitive abilities.
Kindly join in reviewing this presentation on the subject, but ensure you do it alongside the research report which examined in a little more details how the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) attributes of the e-learning framework can be effectively applied in dealing with the LAD challenges. It will be great to also know your thoughts and findings.
