Media Presentation and Concept Representation Variables in Independent Learning. Final Report.
Nielsen, Thomas G.; And Others
An experiment investigated the effects of representational modes, presentation methods, and age on learning. Representation was in either iconic or symbolic verbal style, the verbal component was presented by either tape or booklet, and the pictorial component contrasted filmloops. Nine and eleven year old learners were exposed to a lesson on the concepts of flipcard animation. The main results were the following: the iconic and symbolic modes did not differ in effectiveness; filmloop and filmstrip were equally effective; and the tape/filmloop treatment was more effective than booklet/filmloop, but booklet/filmstrip was more effective than tape/filmstrip.
