There’s only so much room in our working memory. Sometimes Cognitive Load can fill right up for various reasons. The more extraneous the reason, the worse!

Tell us about a time in your life that you were cognitively overloaded while you were trying to learn. Cat walking on your keyboard while trying to write? Cat meowing when listening to a podcast? Cat clawing under the door to your lecture hall? It was a cat, wasn’t it? Include a photo of the cause of your extraneous cognitive load (cat) where possible.
