EdTech 506 – Design Journal

The three types of cognitive loads are:
– extraneous load, which is the type of cognitive load that is based on content irrelevant to the important message.
– germane load, which is a type of cognitive load that is based on the content that has meaning for the learner.
– intrinsic load, which is a type of cognitive load that is based on the content of complexity.

My goal is to focus on the working memory (short-term memory), which allows the learner to hold and process limited amount of information within 5 to 20 seconds.
