Sample text

The early research on spreading activation indicates that as activation spreads through the network, some of the content in the network will not be related to the task at hand, and thus will slow processing (Collins and Loftus 1975), particularly if the information is incorrect or not viable. Yet, in contrast, Alton-Lee and Nuthall (Alton-Lee and Nuthall 1992a, b; Alton-Lee et al. 1993) found that comments students made during classroom lessons, typically considered as being off-task, were often content related.

Sweller (2009) noted that working memory is less tasked when drawing information from long-term memory that is well organized, rather than having the learners seek novel information. This long-term memory is the schema previously described. At issue, then, is the role of the prior knowledge that the learners are bringing with them and if it may, given the source or type of link, contribute to cognitive load or support integration of the knowledge in working memory. Do the personal connections that the learners bring help or hinder their learning process?

35). Clearly, what an individual knows provides a lens through which new information is viewed and provides the point from which that new information could be added into the structure. Although schemata are generalized concepts, they are typically described as being domain specific. , Bruning et al. 2011) schemata are described as being “domain-organized knowledge structures” (p. 21). A quick search of Google Scholar or an indexed data base such as PsycInfo or ERIC finds thousands of entries including the word “schema” as the underlying unit for study in a variety of subject areas.
