Castro-Meneses, Leidy J.; Kruger, Jan-Louis; Doherty, Stephen – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
We know from the literature that high cognitive load can impede performance and educational outcomes. Previous measures of cognitive load have largely relied on subjective scales but few have explored more objective measures. This paper aims to address this issue by examining the validity of electroencephalography (or EEG) as an objective measure…

Gupta, Udita – Educational Research: Theory and Practice, 2019
Out of all the measures of cognitive load, germane load is crucial in determining one's motivation towards learning. The dynamics between the two becomes even more important when individuals are required to grasp understanding of complex content such as the one presented by math. Current stud explores the relationship between the three facets of…

Feldon, David F.; Callan, Gregory; Juth, Stephanie; Jeong, Soojeong – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
Research on cognitive load theory (CLT) has focused primarily on identifying the mechanisms and strategies that enhance cognitive learning outcomes. However, CLT researchers have given less attention to the ways in which cognitive load may interact with the motivational and emotional aspects of learning. Motivational beliefs have typically been…

Huh, Dami; Kim, Ji-Hyun; Jo, Il-Hyun – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
One of the golden rules in instructional design methods is to optimize the use of working memory capacity and avoid cognitive overload. The study of cognitive load has historically relied on one's introspection. However, it is difficult to capture changes in cognitive load levels during learning sensitively. This paper suggests an approach to…

Korbach, Andreas; Brünken, Roland; Park, Babette – Educational Psychology Review, 2018
Recent studies about learning and instruction use cognitive load measurement to pay attention to the human cognitive resources and to the consumption of these resources during the learning process. In order to validate different measures of cognitive load for different cognitive load factors, the present study compares three different methods of…

Klepsch, Melina; Seufert, Tina – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Instructional design deals with the optimization of learning processes. To achieve this, three aspects need to be considered: (1) the learning task itself, (2) the design of the learning material, and (3) the activation of the learner's cognitive processes during learning. Based on Cognitive Load Theory, learners also need to deal with the task…

Anmarkrud, Øistein; Andresen, Anette; Bråten, Ivar – Educational Psychologist, 2019
This article reviews contemporary research on multimedia learning that uses cognitive load theory as the major theoretical framework. In particular, we address the extent to which working memory has been conceptualized and measured in this research, what kind of subjective measures of cognitive load have been used and whether such measures are…

Chang, Chi-Cheng; Warden, Clyde A.; Liang, Chaoyun; Lin, Guan-You – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine differences in learning achievement, flow, and overall cognitive load between digital game-based learning (DGBL) and traditional computer-based learning (CBL). This study was conducted with 103 Taiwan college students: 50 college students in the experimental group used DGBL; 53 students in the control group…

Plass, Jan L.; Kalyuga, Slava – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
We discuss four ways in which emotion may relate to cognitive load during learning. One perspective describes emotions as extraneous cognitive load, competing for the limited resources of working memory by requiring the processing of task-extra or task-irrelevant information. Another perspective shows that encoding, storage, and retrieval of…

Ibili, Emin – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2019
The aim of this study was to explain the relationship between cognitive load and the effects of augmented reality (AR) learning environments. To achieve this aim, firstly, the studies of systematic literature reviews on the potential and limitations of AR learning environments were examined. Afterwards, the effect of AR was categorized in terms of…

Schroeder, Noah L.; Cenkci, Ada T. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
The spatial split-attention principle suggests that presenting related words and pictures spatially close to one another will improve learning compared with a spatially distant design, and two meta-analyses have shown support for the principle. However, it is not clear why the principle occurs. It has been theorized that integrated graphic designs…

Bowman, Shennen – ProQuest LLC, 2018
A gap in the knowledge of literature was found in that no research had been performed examining the effect different physical learning environments have on cognitive load levels. This is important because high cognitive load levels are known to affect learning. The purpose of this quantitative correlational study is to examine the relationship…

Zu, Tianlong – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Cognitive load theory (CLT) (Sweller 1988, 1998, 2010) provides us a guiding framework for designing instructional materials. CLT differentiates three subtypes of cognitive load: intrinsic, extraneous, and germane cognitive load. The three cognitive loads are theorized based on the number of simultaneously processed elements in working memory.…

Redifer, Jenni L.; Bae, Christine L.; DeBusk-Lane, Morgan – SAGE Open, 2019
Creative thinking shares many characteristics with traditional complex tasks. We investigated whether implicit theories of creativity would affect creative thinking in a way similar to the impact of implicit theories of intelligence on academic tasks. We altered participants' theories of creativity to be either more incremental or more…

Furtado, Pedro Gabriel Fonteles; Hirashima, Tsukasa; Hayashi, Yusuke – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2019
Computer-assisted concept map building from provided pieces by using Kit-build is an activity which can promote comprehension and retention. However, users are burdened with searching for pieces and organizing the layout, which are believed to increase the overall cognitive load of the activity. In this paper, we describe the Airmap interface,…
