Organise Ideas: Word-Diagrams understood through the lens of the Extended Mind
Until recently, organisation was considered to be a lower-order skill. Cognitive scientists, Fiorella and Mayer, place it at the centre of their model of learning. This presentation explains why ‘word-diagrams’ (aka graphic organisers) are one of the best ways to organise ideas for teaching and understanding. During the course of this explanation, you all also learn about the Extended Mind and catch up on related Cognitive Load Theory developments.
