  "Cognitive mapping" might be another useful way to talking about Performance Learning. Just a quick addition to the Insight blog here at the beginning of the week. I read an article in The Guardian over the weekend that adds to our use of GPS as a way to think about learning....

We've all heard a lot about "microlearning." What is it, why is it, and does it work? Over the last few years we've seen a growing use of the term "microlearning." While there is no clearly agreed-upon definition of this term (and those who doubt its very existence), I think...

As Keith points out in his response to our last post, it's important to carefully assess the needs of learners and the goals of the learning project.

In the last Insight post ("Forgetting to Remember", 1-27-16), we gestured toward a body of research suggesting that creating learning conditions in which learners work harder to retrieve information can measurably improve memory.

Solomon Shereshevsky (1886-1958) is perhaps the most famous mnemonist of the twentieth century, and became a useful case study in how the brain remembers information.
