Elaboration vs. Cognitive Load: Getting the Balance Right with Technology.


Cognitive load theory and elaboration are two research-based ideas in education that appear, on the face of it, to be contradictory. This isn’t quite true, but it can be difficult to get the balance right. This session will explain how educators can use both ideas effectively and how technology can help.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
