An Overview of the Research on Learning Styles and Hypermedia Environments.
Ayersman, David J.
The purpose of this paper is to provide a conceptual foundation for the development of hypermedia as an instructional tool for addressing individual learning style differences. Various learning theories and their relationship to hypermedia are examined, including information processing theory, semantic networks, concept webbing/mapping, frames/scripting, and schema theory from the works of Piaget. Theory and learning styles are then addressed, including Witkin's field dependence and field independence, Kolb's learning styles, multidimensional learning styles, sensory modalities, and brain hemispherity. Research on the application of CAI/HAI (Computer Assisted Instruction/Hypermedia Assisted Instruction) and learning styles is reviewed. Differences between CAI and HAI are noted, and areas for future research are suggested. (Contains 61 references.) (ALF)
