‘Cognitive load’ is a term used by school psychologists to refer to the amount of load or stress placed on the working memory system during instruction. What is the relationship between cognitive load and working memory? Our working memory has a limited capacity for taking in information. Practitioners will learn how to avoid overloading working memory with information that is non-essential to the task, thereby improving retention. Cognitive Load Theory posits that people have a finite amount of information that can be retained at one time and by structuring information appropriately we can help students retain information more efficiently.
