Abstract

Currently, as the developments of the measuring techniques of non-invasive brain wave measurement instrument have become increasingly mature, it is widely applied for medical or educational researches. This study combined NueroSky and the cognitive load scale to discuss learning considerations and discover the learning pattern for each student. The experimental data found that most learners are more concentrated in the medium and low loads of learning-oriented tasks or non-learning-oriented tasks during their learning process, and the total task execution time or the attention duration of such kinds of tasks will last longer.
