The Psychology of Visual Perception and Learning from Line Drawings: A Survey of the Research Literature.
McIntyre, William A.
Intended to lend organization to the educational media research in visual perception and learning with line drawings, this paper reviews studies that cut across several specialized fields of education and psychology. The studies reviewed are arranged into the following categories: (1) learning from visuals, (2) abstract versus realism theories, (3) visual cues, (4) modes of presentation, and (5) verbal and visual memory processes. The paper concludes that research in this area is often equivocal, leading to the evolution of many conflicting theories. (FL)
