What Does Cognitive Science Say about Using Technology in the Classroom?
Date: February 13, 2015
Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all
Presenters: Linda B. Nilson, Clemson University, Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group
Cognitive psychology should inform our decisions about what technologies to use in the classroom. Recent studies have found that certain technologies typically interfere with or impede students' attention, elaborative rehearsal, encoding, and retrieval of material, while others facilitate these processes or can when properly managed. We need to separate the technological gold from the fool's gold. By the end, participants will be able to assess the arguments for using teaching technologies, explain the basic principles and processes of memory, learning, and attention, assess the learning effectiveness of common teaching technologies in view of cognitive science research, and make better informed technology decisions.
