The Learning Process
Humans are born with the ability to process bits of data /information which allows them to learn complex concepts through a memory storage process known as short term memory. Information that is prioritized and moved into long term memory where it is stored for later retrieval. This frees up memory space in the brain's short term memory.
Learning how to play a sport can be categorized into three separate domains of learning:
Cognitive Domain - Includes content knowledge and the development of technical skills, which includes the recall or recognition of specific facts and concepts related to intellectual abilities and skills. There are six major categories, starting from the simplest behavior (recalling facts) to the most complex (Evaluation). The University of Washington's has a detailed explanation of Bloom's Six Levels of Cognitive Development
