Welcome to our new Learning Science Blog Series! In today's blog we will explore how Knowledge Segmentation, a research-backed proven strategy from Cognitive Science, enables ScootPad to reduce cognitive overload by creating bite-sized knowledge segments and allowing processing time between successive segments. This approach has been painstakingly implemented on ScootPad to transform how knowledge is processed, retained and recalled to enable deep, long-lasting learning.
