THE ROLE OF CONTEXT IN LEARNING PICTORIAL MATERIALS.
DAWSON, MARVIN
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO DISCOVER PRINCIPLES LEADING TO A CHOICE OF ELEMENTS OR COMBINATION OF ELEMENTS IN GRAPHIC CONFIGURATIONS WHICH WOULD RESULT IN INCREASED EFFICIENCY IN LEARNING. EACH GRAPHIC CONFIGURATION WAS THOUGHT OF AS HAVING TWO ELEMENTS--A PRIMARY STIMULUS OBJECT AND A CONTEXT. TWO HYPOTHESES WERE TESTED THROUGH A LEARNING AND RECOGNITION EXPERIMENT USING 2" X 2" SLIDES OF A VARIETY OF GRAPHIC CONFIGURATIONS. THE RESULTS SUPPORTED OTHER STUDIES WHICH HAVE FOUND THAT MEANINGFUL MATERIALS ARE EASIER TO LEARN THAN NONSENSE MATERIALS. (JM)
