KEYNOTE: Take the Load Off
This session will be filmed/recorded.
When students feel overwhelmed, lost and cognitively overloaded, learning is negatively impacted. In fact, it impedes any long-term learning from happening. So, in the spirit of CTRL +shift and to remove the extraneous, I will be focussing on reducing the cognitive overload on our students as we design instruction. I will do this by sharing some of the fundamental theories to design effective instruction and how we can integrate these theories into practice, especially as we navigate through numerous EdTech tools available to us. I will also share evidence-informed principles of instruction that one can easily integrate for both face-to-face and online learning.
