Animation, Incidental Learning, and Continuing Motivation

Journal of Educational Psychology Volume 83, Number 3, ISSN 0022-0663


Effects of animated graphics presentations on incidental learning and the degree to which various computer practice activities contain intrinsically motivating characteristics were studied with 70 fourth graders learning about Newton's laws of motion. Incidental learning occurred without sacrifice of intentional learning. Students were highly motivated to practice the computer activity. (SLD)
