Exploring the relation between visualizer–verbalizer cognitive styles and performance with visual or verbal learning material
Computers & Education Vol. 58, No. 2 (February 2012) pp. 697–706
A student might find a certain representational format (e.g., diagram, text) more attractive than other formats for learning. Computer technology offers opportunities to adjust the formats used in learning environments to the preferences of...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 6, No. 2 (June 2011) pp. 223–251
Constructing a representation in which students express their domain understanding can help them improve their knowledge. Many different representational formats can be used to express one's domain understanding (e.g., concept maps, textual...
Learner Performance in Multimedia Learning Arrangements: An Analysis across Instructional Approaches
American Educational Research Journal Vol. 46, No. 4 (2009) pp. 1107–1149
In this study, the authors compared four multimedia learning arrangements differing in instructional approach on effectiveness and efficiency for learning: (a) hypermedia learning, (b) observational learning, (c) self-explanation-based learning, and ...
The Effects of Representational Format on Learning Combinatorics from an Interactive Computer Simulation
Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 37, No. 6 (November 2009) pp. 503–517
The current study investigated the effects of different external representational formats on learning combinatorics and probability theory in an inquiry based learning environment. Five conditions were compared in a pre-test post-test design: three...
Computers & Education Vol. 57, No. 2 (September 2011) pp. 1741–1748
Research suggests that providing others with elaborated explanations is more beneficial for learning than receiving explanations (e.g., Webb, 1989). Applied to chat communication in a collaborative inquiry learning environment, we would...
