A worked example demonstrates the steps required to complete a task or solve a problem. By scaffolding the learning, worked examples support skill acquisition and reduce a learner’s cognitive load. Georgia presents a worked example and explains each step. Later, students can use worked examples during independent practice, and to review and embed new knowledge.
