Funny teaching may inhibit learning

When teachers use a funny joke, a cat video or even background music in their lessons, it keeps students from understanding the main content. These so-called "seductive details," information that is interesting but irrelevant, can be detrimental to learning, according to a meta-analysis by Washington State University researchers.

The analysis of 58 studies involving more than 7,500 students found that those who learned with seductive details performed lower on learning outcome measures than those who learned without the extraneous information.
