Connection Failure

    I completely agree with Clark when he talks about getting people emotionally involved in the learning process. I've done a lot of research recently about the cognitive impact emotionally engaged learning can have on the brain. Cognitive scientists have proven that there is a chemical reaction to engaging someone emotionally and will place this information into long-term memory. So anything trainers can do to involve the learner with an emotional activity such as humor, the use of color, simulations etc. will increase the chances of knowledge transfer.
