Using Dual Coding to Process Information and Learn Effectively

Combining verbal and visual information (dual coding) can help you learn more effectively. This resource explains the key concepts behind dual coding and offers suggestions for how it can help you enhance your coaching

Learning involves taking in information, thinking about it (in the working memory) and trying to transfer it to long-term memory, so we can remember and use it. 

This can be seen in Willingham’s memory model (2009). 

Our memory has a limited supply of attention available. In fact, it is thought that we can only pay attention to one stimulus in the environment at a time. 

This is called selective attention and means we are good at focusing on one thing at a time but not so good at paying attention to lots of things at the same time.
