Are Realistic Or Are Abstract Visual Representations More Effective Tools In Technology-Based Geosciences Education?

Jolin Adeeb Qutub

Abstract


In this study, the researchers developed two visual representations for use in the geosciences context. One of the study’s goals was to demonstrate the educational value of distinguishing realistic from abstract visual representations in order to explore which type of representation most improves students’ cognitive understanding and learning of science. Four 4th-grade students were observed and videotaped while interacting with the developed representations. The researchers used the results to develop recommendations regarding useful pedagogical imagery.
