What does microlearning mean: “Micro is a methodology that maps to how the brain works, in short bites.” When I asked Leaman the best way for the brain to learn, she said “The brain is good at remembering 4 to 5 new things in one condensed period of time. Brain Attention span is about 11 minutes. The best way to train is to keep it short and convey 4 to 5 new ideas in each session.” She continued to say that “The brain needs a break. We are overwhelmed. The brain is not wired to stay alert and on to work this way.”
