How to make use of Desirable Difficulties to boost your learning ?

Robert Bjork of UCLA Desirable difficulties are difficulties which challenge the comfort but ends up creating long term desirable effects(Learning).   The concept of “desirable difficulties” was developed by Robert Bjork of UCLA. In his research, he noticed various kinds of experimental phenomena which indicated the emergence of 2 predominant patterns in learning. They are: … Continue reading How to make use of Desirable Difficulties to boost your learning ?

Tweet: Measuring actual learning versus feeling of learning.

https://twitter.com/ulrichboser/status/1171102215475531778 This study compared passive lectures with active learning using a randomized experimental approach and identical course materials The study reached the following findings; Students in the active classroom learn more.But, they feel like they learn less. It shows that this negative correlation is caused mostly by the increased cognitive effort required during active learning.

Confusion and learning complex information

  Most of us assume that confidence and certainty are preferred over uncertainty when it comes to learning complex information. But a new study shows that confusion when learning can be beneficial if it is properly induced, effectively regulated and ultimately resolved. This study is much similar to the theme of Desirable difficulty hypothesis by … Continue reading Confusion and learning complex information
