How does cognitive load theory affect teachers?

We talk a lot about the cognitive load that we impose on students and how to get the most out of them without overloading. In this blog, Matt examines how he felt overloaded himself as he worked his way through a difficult explanation – it’s so important that we take this into account so that we can have as much free headspace as possible to be able to adequately and efficiently respond to our students’ performance.

At cogscisci, we love publicising blogs and using them to spark debate. If you have your own blog or have read a blog that you would like us to publicise, please email it to us at We try to frame these blogs as questions, so if you are on social media, please join the conversation with us here by simply giving what you think is a good answer to the question.
