Accessible Vocabulary & Syntax
Use It In Your Learning Environment
Instructors can strategically simplify their Syntax and Vocabulary to relieve students' cognitive load in Working Memory, especially if they need to focus on some other challenging aspect of learning. When teaching Digital Literacy and technological skills, instructors should be careful to keep instruction free of complex jargon.
Products can provide adaptive language that adjusts to the appropriate Vocabulary and Syntax complexity that can be read and understood by learners. They can also introduce features for learners to practice target words and grow their Vocabulary understanding. Those products requiring Disciplinary Literacy, including health and financial products, should be written with accessible language to ensure comprehension.
