The Learning Process

//The Learning Process

As we have previously discussed, learning occurs when information moves from the short-term memory into the long-term memory due to some act of processing of the information. For the processing of information into the long-term memory to be successful, the right circumstances must exist.
The capacity of a learner to focus on a concept is considered to be around 20-30 minutes. After that period of time, learning will be less effective. Also, the act of processing information into our long-term memory takes time and the process can only handle a limited amount of information at one time. Therefore, a program must be designed to allow for the optimal focus time of the learners and the time it takes for the information to be processed into the long-term memory.
So, long, tedious lessons which contain a lot of information are not only boring for the learners, they do not actually achieve the learning goal. 20-30 minutes is the optimal amount of time a lesson should be designed to take.
