In a series of studies published in July of 2020, researchers in the Bjork Learning and Forgetting Lab at UCLA have revealed how to construct true-false questions in a way that enhances learning beyond what previous true-false questions have been able to achieve.
The world never entirely goes back to what it was before a time like this. Something we have all known for years but struggled to create just advanced 10+ years in only nine months. It's the notion that sophisticated adaptive online training done right significantly outperforms classroom training.
Children’s Hospital Colorado (CHCO) has spearheaded a sepsis quality improvement initiative focused on improving early detection and effective management of sepsis. The goal was to use training to support clinicians’ quick, confident, and correct decision-making when pediatric sepsis is or should be suspected.
AI is incredibly powerful. It can save organizations the laborious task of analyzing curriculum or results just to determine what’s working and what is not. Here are just a few ways that you may see AI applied within online learning experiences. They range from the obvious to the behind the scenes application of Artificial Intelligence within learning software.
Multiple choice retrieval unleashes powerful effects that increase both retrieval strength and storage strength of the correct answer plus the alternatives. It’s a virtuous circle of memory fortification.
A recent article published by Springer Nature shares how an adaptive learning platform harnesses artificial intelligence and the principles of cognitive psychology to find and fill knowledge gaps among clinicians to reduce medical errors. This article summarizes those findings.
Research has also shown that multiple practice tests can further improve retention and test performance. Repeatedly asking your brain to dig around and produce sought-after information creates stronger connections and retrieval pathways in the brain.
Educators and education institutions have long believed that learning styles not only matter but are the key to effective learning. Many educators have been encouraged to create learning experiences based on these “styles” to improve learning outcomes. But, do such experiences actually result in better learning?
We all complain about how lousy our memories are. But forgetting is one of the most important tasks your brain undertakes. In fact, your brain intentionally and immediately discards almost everything you experience.
All games use powerful triggers that cause learning, long term memory, and motivation. This is true of board games, video games (which now generate more revenue than movies), and sports.
