Mixed Media Visualization Effect On Student Perceptions And Learning Outcomes, James Birt Apr 2015

Mixed Media Visualization Effect On Student Perceptions And Learning Outcomes, James Birt

James Birt

This paper presents a methodology and pilot study rationale to examine the effect of mixed media visualization on learning outcomes in three dimensional (3D) modeling. The context for this study is a university first year undergraduate interactive media and design course. Meta analytic studies in the use of visualizations show positive improvements in learning outcomes among low and high spatial learners. But often these studies are focused on single media and virtual representations.Many multimedia learning studies do not take into consideration important factors that could influence the appropriate selection of media. This exploratory study aims to address this through ...

Effect Of Mixed Media Visualization On Learner Perceptions And Outcomes, James Birt, Dirk Hovorka

James Birt

This pilot study examines the effect of mixed media visualization on learner perceptions and outcomes in 3D spatial modeling. The context for this study is a university first year undergraduate interactive media and design course. Meta analytic studies in the use of visualizations show positive improvements in learning outcomes among low and high spatial learners. But often these studies are focused on single media and virtual representations. Many multimedia learning studies do not take into consideration important factors that could influence the appropriateselection of media. This exploratory study aims to address this from a learner’s perspective through the evaluation ...
