Internalization of Filmic Schematic Operations in Relation to Individual Differences.
Two major hypotheses were tested in three experiments. The first hypothesis proposed that students can imitate and internalize filmic codes, to be used subsequently as covert schematized mediators. The second hypothesis was that subjects with low relevant aptitude scores would profit more than better able subjects from films which model for them schematic operations to be internalized. The subjects, 80 eighth-graders, were shown two operations--laying out solid objects and zooming in on details--in experimental conditions using either films or slides. Results confirmed that the internalization of schematic filmic codes is possible and leads to improved performance on related transfer tasks and ability tests and that low aptitude subjects, in particular, improved their ability to use the operations as covert mental skills.
