A Digital Skills Gap: Addressing the Cognitive Challenges of Learning Online and In-Person

Description

Learning environments are evolving, but what does that mean for students’ learning skills? A student can be watching a lecture, taking notes, and communicating with their peers all from the same screen. For a student of any ability, this can put pressure on working memory, attention, and information processing skills. This session explores research into students’ experiences of online learning and ideas for how to future-proof support of digital skills.
