Chunk Content Delivery (Remote Learning)

For students learning from videos or virtually, particularly those with weaker attention, working memory, processing or reasoning

Teach It!

  1. Objective: Break down content instruction into manageable chunks so it can be more easily understood and remembered.
  2. Teacher Takeaways: Deliver virtual or video content in manageable chunks of no more than 5-10 minutes of watching, listening or reading. If you assign a longer video, you can have them watch a segment (e.g. 1:10 to 6:35). Follow up with active learning such as answering a comprehension question, writing a reflection or having a discussion.
  3. Note: Chunking can be a real confidence booster! By adding new information incrementally, students will develop confidence in their ability to master the content and avoid the overwhelming feeling of having to learn too much information at once.

Why It Works (the Science Of Learning)!

Students can be overwhelmed if they are asked to learn too much information at once and ultimately not understand or remember what was taught. Pausing at regular intervals enables students to ensure they understand and digest information before moving on to the next chunk. This increases the opportunity to make connections, solidify understanding and increase the likelihood of long-term retention.
