Today the subject is Cognitive Load.

Cognitive load pertains to the mental effort utilized in working memory. Young learners, with developing working memories, are particularly susceptible to cognitive overload, where excessive or complex information hampers understanding. Effective instructional design can be the key to prevent this. By structuring content carefully, educators can optimize information delivery without overwhelming learners.

Children with ADD/ADHD, often facing working memory challenges, are even more prone to cognitive overload. Therefore, streamlined instructional design tailored to their needs is crucial.

Write Size products follow these instructional design principles.
