What Makes Learning Meaningful?

  • Relevance: Relevance is how the learner personally connects with the material, not how the instructor connects (although that helps). Connect information with other known information. Use associations to make it meaningful.
  • Emotion: The stronger the emotion, the more the meaning. All emotional experiences “code” our learning as important.
  • Patterns & Context: Information in isolation has little meaning. Each “puzzle piece” is always part of something larger. It’s the “big picture” that makes the most sense.

Why Context before Content? 

We know that “content” has a completely different meaning if it is put in a different “context”.  In order to determine the best information to provide, we first need to identify what is behind the request.  All learning has “context” as well as historical relevance.  This context and relevance is based not so much on the content of the information that was used to learn, but the meaning and emotion we associate with it.  By understanding this we are given the ability to extend our learning events beyond simply looking for information, and guessing whether or not we have asked the right questions.

Questions that need to be answered?


  • How do we assist our teachers in meeting the demanding needs of our children, while balancing the cost in terms of time and money?
  • How can we reach all levels of learning ability without jeopardizing both talent and desire?
  • How can we provide tools that meet individual needs, in a group setting?
  • How do we ensure parents that their children are receiving the best education available?


MYOGY helps by asking questions to qualify what you are looking for.  By doing this, not only is the student assisted in attaining the information he or she is looking for, but they are given the opportunity to use critical thinking to make those selections.

So how do we do it?

In order to create the learning engagement that will capture both the attention of the user and facilitate the transfer of information to continue the knowledge transfer cycle (KTC), we must create an environment that allows for seamless transaction.  KTC is just like the communication cycle, it presents information, that information is received, and feedback is provided back showing either a positive or negative outcome.  Through an immersive interaction, the KTC is validated on a continual basis, and learns from each interaction.

Utilizing Cognitive Animation, we create the environment.  Cognitive animation is not merely the creation of the computer generated image (CGI) actor (CGIA), but rather the creation of the environment that allows for the actor to self-generate and self-manipulate based on input (verbal) from the input source (user).
