The article above matched my understanding of how my students might learn and underscored the importance of explicit teaching followed by practice and then revision. This mirrors the structure of a typical lesson in ‘Digital as students are explicitly taught via tutorial videos and they then have the opportunity to practice / implement the material that has been taught. Subsequent lessons often require students to revisit / recycle their learning from a previous tutorial.
The work is broken down into small bite size chunks to try and prevent cognitive overload. Thus far the strategy is working well for most students.
