The Application of Consistent Cognitive Framework in Physics Teaching

Xuan Ke, Xiaojuan Niu, Yafang Tu


The cognitive framework is based on human psychology and consists of a set of unique psychological elements
consistent with feelings, concepts, opinions, attitudes, and behaviors. Cognitive framework is the instinctive way that
human beings use to recognize new things. Cognitive framework greatly affects people’s learning process and learning
effect. If teachers can make full use of a consistent cognitive framework in teaching, students will get twice the result with
half the effort. This article uses three cognitive models, namely electric current, photon, and the world line in the theory of
relativity, to illustrate the importance of the consistency of the cognitive framework in physics teaching.
