“The impact of learning driven constructs on the perceived higher order cognitive skills improvement: Multimedia vs. text”

International Journal of Education and Development using ICT, Vol. 8, No. 2 (2012).

This article reports on a study to determine the impact of learning driven constructs on Perceived Higher Order Cognitive Skills (HOCS) improvement when using multimedia and text materials.  The study concludes that there was no significant difference in the students’ attitudes, learning interest, learned from others, self reported learning, and HOCS of decision making, problem solving, critical thinking, and other skills when multimedia and text book materials were used.

IJEDICT is an online, open access journl that aims to strengthen links between research and practice in ICT in education and development in hitherto less developed parts of the world.

    Interesting article. Working for an organization that delivers training world wide has given be an opportunity to look at how international users view multimedia presentations. Some recent studies indicated that while we often try to provide a simplified multimedia presentation as “best” design, many international users find the multimedia presentation with highly detailed, text heavy presentations as preferable to our “ideal” multimedia presentation.

      Multimedia works best when teaching: Facts, Concepts, Process, Procedure and Principle.

      Additionally, images can be ineffective or promote cognitive load if they are used in excess and as page decorations instead of representational, relational and transformational.

      I favor a menu of solutions/technologies to solve On-The-Job performance related issues.

      A solution/technology that will work to solve an environmental problem may not necessarily work if the problem is in the area of tools and resources.
