Dan, Alex; Reiner, Miriam – Journal of Educational Data Mining, 2017
One of the recommended approaches in instructional design methods is to optimize the value of working memory capacity and avoid cognitive overload. Educational neuroscience offers novel processes and methodologies to analyze cognitive load based on physiological measures. Observing psychophysiological changes when they occur in response to the…

Kim, Jeonghyun; Jo, Il-Hyun – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
The purpose of this study was to identify the feasibility of using the pupil dilation and heart rate variability (HRV), to diagnose learners' changing cognitive load in a video learning setting. The pupil dilation and HRV of 23 participants were recorded during their learning progress, and the learning materials, including differences in task…

Derry, Jan – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
Cognitive load theory has challenged contemporary approaches to teaching by arguing that they are ineffective because of a neglect of the psychology underpinning learning and, specifically, the high demand placed on working memory. This paper challenges the presuppositions involved not only in arguments for guided instruction by those supporting…

Juanengsih, Nengsih; Rahmat, Adi; Wulan, Ana Ratna; Rahman, Taufik – Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences, 2021
This study aims to analyse students' extraneous cognitive load (ECL) in cell biology lectures. Participants in the study were 31 students of the Biology Education Department who attended the Cell Biology course from a university in Jakarta, Indonesia. The Cell Biology lectures include fours topics. The data of ECL were measured using…

Zu, Tianlong; Hutson, John; Loschky, Lester C.; Rebello, N. Sanjay – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2020
In a previous study, DeLeeuw and Mayer (2008) found support for the triarchic model of cognitive load (Sweller, Van Merriënboer, & Paas, 1998, 2019) by showing that three different metrics could be used to independently measure 3 hypothesized types of cognitive load: intrinsic, extraneous, and germane. However, 2 of the 3 metrics that the…

Janssen, Jeroen; Kirschner, Paul A. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2020
Research on computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) has traditionally investigated how student-, group-, task-, and technological characteristics affect the processes and outcomes of collaboration. On the other hand, cognitive load theory has traditionally been used to study individual learning processes and to investigate instructional…

Wirth, Joachim; Stebner, Ferdinand; Trypke, Melanie; Schuster, Corinna; Leutner, Detlev – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
Models of self-regulated learning emphasize the active and intentional role of learners and, thereby, focus mainly on conscious processes in working memory and long-term memory. Cognitive load theory supports this view on learning. As a result, both fields of research ignore the potential role of unconscious processes for learning. In this review…

Bianchi, Laura J.; Kingstone, Alan; Risko, Evan F. – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2020
The effect of cognitive load on social attention was examined across three experiments in a live pedestrian passing scenario (Experiments 1 and 2) and with the same scenario presented as a video (Experiment 3). In all three experiments, the load was manipulated using an auditory 2-back task. While the participant was wearing a mobile eye-tracker,…

de Bruin, Anique B. H.; Roelle, Julian; Carpenter, Shana K.; Baars, Martine – Educational Psychology Review, 2020
An exponential increase in the availability of information over the last two decades has asked for novel theoretical frameworks to examine how students optimally learn under these new learning conditions, given the limitations of human processing ability. In this special issue and in the current editorial introduction, we argue that such a novel…

Ozeri-Rotstain, Aya; Shachaf, Ifaat; Farah, Rola; Horowitz-Kraus, Tzipi – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
Children with reading difficulties (RD) share challenges in executive functions (EF). Neurobiological correlates provide evidence for EF challenges during reading among these readers, but an online cognitive load detection mechanism has yet to be developed. Nevertheless, eye-movement tracking can provide online data of reading patterns (pupil…

Mavilidi, Myrto F.; Zhong, Lijia – Educational Psychology Review, 2019
This manuscript presents an interview with John Sweller, Fred Paas, and Jeroen van Merrienboer about cognitive load theory. It presents the views of these main founders of the theory on the progress from the first major publication on the theory in 1998 (Sweller, Van Merrienboer, & Paas, "Educational Psychology Review," 10(3),…

Cheng, Kun-Hung – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2017
Since augmented reality (AR) has been increasingly applied in education recently, the investigation of students' learning experiences with AR could be helpful for educators to implement AR learning. With a quantitative survey using three questionnaires, this study explored the relationships among 153 students' perceived cognitive load, motivation,…

Hong, Jianzhong; Pi, Zhongling; Yang, Jiumin – Innovations in Education and Teaching International, 2018
Video lectures are being widely used in online and blended learning classes worldwide, and their learning effectiveness is becoming a focus of many educators and researchers. This study examined the cognitive load and learning effectiveness of video lectures in terms of the type of knowledge being taught (declarative or procedural) and instructor…

Pickens, Kathleen E. – Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, 2017
If the goal of library instructional guidance is to provide students with the knowledge needed to acquire new skills in order to accomplish their learning objectives, then it is prudent to consider factors that impact learning. Cognitive load theory addresses several of these factors and is applicable to a wide-range of instructional devices used…

Frisby, Brandi N.; Sexton, Benson T.; Buckner, Marjorie M.; Beck, Anna-Carrie; Kaufmann, Renee – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2018
Framed by literature regarding classroom interactions that affect students' cognitive processing, this study provided an integrative approach to understanding distracting instructor and student communication. Participants qualitatively reported on either a distracting peer (n = 90) or instructor (n = 127). The responses were coded using…
