Cognitive science

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Viktorija Radotic

Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary, scientific study of the mind and its processes. It examines the nature, the tasks, and the functions of cognition. Cognitive scientists study intelligence and behaviour, with a focus on how nervous systems represent, process, and transform information.

Cognitive science spans many levels of organisation, from learning and decision to logic and planning; from neural circuitry to modular brain organisation.

This module looks at cognitive science as thinking can best be understood in terms of representational structures in the mind and computational procedures that operate on those structures. This module includes resources from KS2 to KS5.

We will explore

  • The concept and principles of cognitive science
  • The difference between cognitive neuroscience and cognitive science
  • What is in your mind?
  • The concept of the mind
  • What is artificial intelligence?

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans KS2 to KS5
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
