Adapting Visual Illustrations for Effective Learning.
Dwyer, Francis M., Jr.
Harvard Educational Review, v37 n2 p250-263 1967
Reports on the effectiveness of visual illustrations used in conjunction with oral instructions. Results indicate that the reduction of realistic detail in an illustration does not necessarily reduce its instructional effectiveness and in many cases improves it. There were also significant differences in the effectiveness of different types of instruction for different educational objectives. In the final analysis, it is probably necessary to determine what details are crucial cues for particular lessons. (RH)
