"Research since our second edition has focused on instructional methods you can use to maximize the benefits of worked examples. We organize the evidence into the following principles:
- Principle 1: Fade from worked examples to problems
- Principle 2: Promote self-explanations
- Principle 3: Include instructional explanations of worked examples in some situations
- Principle 4: Apply the multimedia principles to examples
- Principle 5: Support learning transfer"

Using the instructional tool called worked examples is an excellent instructional strategy to promote higher cognitive learning, long-term memory storage, and better cognitive retrieval of information (Clark & Mayer, 2011, Chapter 11).
Furthermore, using work example teaching techniques helps learners make stronger connections between existing learner knowledge and new learning material.
The unique weaning process that work example strategies use to promote learner self-efficacy is amazing to watch unfold as students master the individuals steps of any work example product used.
Again, one will use the synchronous chess learning tutorials to demonstrate the worked example principle.
Worked examples for each of the 15 tactical motifs is built into the lesson, demonstrating the entire tactical motif from beginning to the end.
Each worked example effectively addresses the three learning styles; the visual presentation of the worked example for the visual learner, each worked example is narrated for the audio learner, and the student can move the chess pieces as the work example is explained for the tactile learner.

When the learner is given a step by step demonstration of all the task associated with a skill or problem and allowed to practice each step one at a time until they solve the problem their confidence level increases. By actively engaging the student worked examples promotes deeper processing of information. (Proctor Galloway)
