Definition Edit

Cognitivism is

a theory and psychology of learning that states human beings process information and meaning through the retrieval of experiences stored as mental schema. Cognitive structures help us to think, absorb and retain information and knowledge via previously-experienced events. This process involves access to memories and building mental schema to recognize, recall, apply, understand and reflect on knowledge.[1]
