Two quick links on Cognitive Load Theory I've been fielding lots of questions lately about Cognitive Load Theory. Here are two quick links that may be useful. First is an article talking about the practical implications of CLT on the design of learning. The second are some "recent" (as of 2003) developments regarding CLT. Happy reading! Update: I clarified the second...

Nearest book meme

Category : General

Doug Johnson of the Blue Skunk Blog recently posted about the Nearest Book Meme.

I thought I’d play along.

The book is called 365 Daily Devotions for  Righteous Man.

Page 56 is also Day 56, and the fifth sentence is, “And, few things in life provide more contentment than the knowledge that we are obeying God’s commandments.”

I didn’t plan this, but it happened to be the nearest book. If you want to play along, here are the rules:

* Get the book nearest to you. Right now.
* Go to page 56.
* Find the 5th sentence.
* Write this sentence – either here or on your blog.
* Copy these instructions as commentary of your sentence.
* Don’t look for your favorite book or your coolest but really the nearest.

And like Doug, I want to say Thanks to Stephen Abrams of Stephen’s Lighthouse for this rather interesting (and easy) meme.
