The Effectiveness of Microlearning to Improve Students’ Learning Ability

One of the most important requirements for successful learning experiences is learning activity on a regular basis. The problem with today’s learning system is that the learners often get stuck while using traditional learning systems because they can’t motivate them to fast learning and make a creative mind. Successful learning requires getting knowledge on regular bases and keeping it memorable as long as possible. The problem with traditional learning methods is that the learner's mind glued in its state and it does not provide any motivation to them to get new knowledge and improve their skills. Microlearning provides a new teaching paradigm which can allow knowledge and information to divided into small chunks and deliver it to the learners. Microlearning can make the learning subjects easy to understand and memorable for a longer period. In this work, we tested microlearning teaching methods for ICT subject in the Primary school. We chose two groups from a Primary school in Sulaimani city. Then we teach the class using microlearning methods in one of them and traditional methods in the other for six weeks. After testing both groups getting the results, Microlearning group showed around 18% better learning than traditional group. We can conclude that using microlearning techniques, the effectiveness, and efficiency of learning can be improved. Also, the knowledge can stay memorable for longer periods.
