The cognitive Learning theory explores the concepts that instruction must be well organized, clearly structured, well displayed, and should provide feedback for learning to take place. Therefore how can the used of technology supports the cognitive learning theory.
In this week lesson we learned about, activities that will get student involved in their learning experience. We learnt how we can use word processing, spreadsheet and multimedia tools to enhance the learning capabilities of students. One of the way is by using these software to create a medium of clues, questions and advance organizers. The use of brainstorming software can also help student use their mental facets in order to reach success in learning. Some Students are visual and while some are otherwise in their learning styles to use of technology does reach these students, so that they can understand concepts more clearly. The visual use of PowerPoint and video will help students to understand key concepts.
Note taking is another essential component in order for students to provide feedback, take notes for reflection and they can use this also as a place to ask questions.
My students love the use of blogs and discussion forum they get a chance to express themselves, ask questions, etc. This I can testify is a great way to enhance learning.
