Chunking for Cognitive Load
Every classroom instructor has seen the vacant stare of cognitive overload. Too much too fast produces that vacant stare. Singular focus, tight scope, and logical chunking helps us manage cognitive load.

The device below is one example of chunked information. To further reduce cognitive load, it allows learners to control the flow of information. This device can pack significant information into a small footprint, without cognitive overload. It enables considerable detail, while retaining big picture context. Components like these are excellent for after class refreshers.

In the example below, roll-over characters in the presentation to see process step requirements. Click to advance through the process flow.
