Integrated Pictures and Relational Imagery Training in Children's Learning.
Danner, Fred W.; Taylor, Arthur M.
The effects of integrated pictures of nouns, training in imagining relations between separate pictures of nouns, and the combination of training and integrated pictures on the recall of noun triplets were assessed in children from grades one, three, and six. The cued recall of nouns under these three conditions was from 2 to 6 times greater than that of the control group in all 3 grades. In grade 6, these children who had been trained to generate their own relations between the pictured nouns recalled significantly more than those who had been shown integrated (i.e., already related) pictures of the nouns. It was suggested that encouraging young children to seek out and generate relations between items to be learned might help them become aware of and more confident of their ability to improve their own learning efficiency.
