Ouwehand, Kim; van Gog, Tamara; Paas, Fred – Educational Technology & Society, 2015
Research suggests that learners will likely spend a substantial amount of time looking at the model's face when it is visible in a video-based modeling example. Consequently, in this study we hypothesized that learners might not attend timely to the task areas the model is referring to, unless their attention is guided to such areas by the model's…

Wong, Mona; Castro-Alonso, Juan C.; Ayres, Paul; Paas, Fred – Educational Technology & Society, 2015
Humans have an evolved embodied cognition that equips them to deal easily with the natural movements of object manipulations. Hence, learning a manipulative task is generally more effective when watching animations that show natural motions of the task, rather than equivalent static pictures. The present study was completed to explore this…
