STUDIES RELATED TO THE DESIGN OF AUDIOVISUAL TEACHING MATERIALS.
TRAVERS, ROBERT M.W.
AN INFORMATION TRANSMISSION MODEL THAT ADVOCATES LEARNING VIA ONLY ONE SENSE MODALITY (E.G. VISUAL) IS THE BASIS FOR SEVERAL SERIES OF EXPERIMENTS, EACH SUBJECTED TO RIGOROUS STATISTICAL ANALYSIS. CONCLUSIONS ARE--LEARNING IS NOT FACILITATED BY REDUNDANT INFORMATION PRESENTED SIMULTANEOUSLY THROUGH THE AUDITORY AND VISUAL SENSE MODALITIES, IT IS IMPORTANT TO LINK VISUAL INFORMATION WITH PREVIOUSLY STORED INFORMATION BY USE OF VERBAL SYMBOLS, SIMULTANEOUS NON-REDUNDANT USE OF TWO SENSORY CHANNELS IS HIGHLY EFFICIENT IN PAIRED-ASSOCIATE LEARNING, INDIVIDUALS DIFFER WIDELY IN SPEED WITH WHICH SENSORY MATERIAL IS PROCESSED, A DECREMENT IN LEARNING RESULTS FROM SWITCHING SENSORY CHANNELS DURING THE COURSE OF A PRESENTATION, AS INFORMATION IS RECEIVED THROUGH ONE CHANNEL THERE IS A BUILD-UP OF THE DISRUPTION INVOLVED IN SWITCHING SENSE MODALITY, USE OF COMPRESSED VISUAL INFORMATION (ELIMINATION OF REDUNDANT OR IRRELEVANT INFORMATION) PROVES TO BE AN INEFFECTIVE TEACHING METHOD WITH A GIVEN AGE GROUP, AND THERE IS HIGH VARIABILITY IN RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SPEED OF PRESENTATION, COMPREHENSION, AND COMPRESSION. MOST OF THESE STUDIES HAVE APPEARED IN JOURNALS, OR ARE EXCERPTS FROM DOCTORAL DISSERTATIONS ON FILE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH. (LH)
