Modern learning has been changed immensely with the use of technology, and studying how modern students learn. Researchers and teachers can now study their students way of learning, and adapt their teaching to individual learning abilities. New teaching practices, such as breaking up large chunks of information into useable amounts of info to better teach students, have been implemented to improve the modern learning experience. Teachers and students are able to provide more feedback and communication, both from teacher to student, but also teacher to material provider. Modern learning with these tools has created a world where learning becomes part of daily living.
- Students learning has been lifted into new heights and the sky is the limit with the advancement made in neuroscience and educational technology.
- These advances introduces a fluidity in the way educators can deliver content, interact with students, and modify their teaching approach, rather than rely on a default learning model.
- Based on the understanding that learning is done differently by everyone, algorithms are used by adaptive learning technology to track student performance and modify the presentation of material.
“Extraneous cognitive load is the mental effort we use when trying to block out external distractions. We all have limits to how much information we can hold in mind.”
