Cognitive Biases Project

27th May 21

The PHA (Potential High Achiever) students in Year 8 and Year 9 have just finished their Cognitive Biases Project in which they present what they have learned and researched themselves about cognitive biases. Knowing about these biases should help them to make more informed choices throughout their school career.

Daniel presented his book review on Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman’s ‘Thinking Fast and Slow’, a seminal work that introduces the concept of System1/2 thinking.

Dayan created a fantastic blog explaining different cognitive biases. You can read it here.

Oliver made a creative stop-gap animation, explaining what he had learned in a fun, dynamic way.

Will presented on biases by programming a computer-based guide in Scratch.

James wrote articles, examining the significance of cognitive bias in deciding the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Jack examined how cognitive biases might affect performance in sport.

There is a really impressive range of work here, very well done to you all.
