The Relationship between Prior Knowledge and Interactive Overviews During Hypermedia-Aided Learning.
Shapiro, Amy M.
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v20 n2 p143-67 1999
Uses interactive overviews (IOs), a type of advance organizer, to explore the effect of interaction between organizer structure and prior knowledge on novices' ability to meet learning goals. Participants were assigned to learn about ecosystems with a hypermedia program. Results indicated that the ecosystem IO aided learners in meeting an ecosystems learning goal, about which they had no prior knowledge. Contains 50 references. (Author/AEF)
