- distributed cognition- students need social ties to other students to help them gather information, keep track of tasks, and, in short, manage information overload.
- CC students in particular may be more prone to information overload, and don't have distributed cognition (#1) available to improve outcomes.
- CC students need formalized PIM tools to improve task/ time management and compensate for reduced social support for distributed cognition.
- Oh yea, by the way, maybe they can carpool too.
That's my entire dissertation.
Unfortunately, I'm suffering from information overload in my own way- in terms of how to navigate the stacks of articles, books, and my varyous outside obligations, to put together a coherent proposal. And just waiting until summer isn't a solution either.
