Dual Coding Theory E Langhorst

  1. 1. Allan Paivio and Dual Coding Theory Eric Langhorst – Walden University – EdD Student – September 2009 EDUC – 8140 – 7 - “Leadership for Today’s Schools” Instructor – Jerita Whaley
  2. 2. Allan Paivio <ul><li>Born December 1, 1941 </li></ul><ul><li>Professor of Psychology at University of Western Ontario </li></ul><ul><li>Author of Dual Coding Theory </li></ul>
  3. 3. Origins of Theory <ul><li>Paivio had subjects recall a list of words and a list of pictures </li></ul><ul><li>Pictures and words were recalled in a different order </li></ul><ul><li>Theory we process information in two separate channels </li></ul>
  4. 4. Audio Channel Visual Channel
  5. 5. Dual Coding Theory <ul><li>Theory of cognition which states both visual and verbal information is processed separately </li></ul>
  6. 6. Example <ul><li>Watching a television show with video footage of a rainforest while describing how the ecosystem works </li></ul>
  7. 7. Anderson & Bower (1973) <ul><li>Verbal information can be enhanced when paired with a visual image, real or imagined. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Stone & Glock (1981) <ul><li>College students were given written assembly instruction </li></ul><ul><li>Fewer errors when shown pictures with text </li></ul>
  9. 9. Levie & Lentz (1982) <ul><li>Children learned more from text that was presented with illustrations </li></ul><ul><li>Learning increased by one-third with illustrations </li></ul>
  10. 10. Mayer & Sims (1994) <ul><li>Multimedia can be effective when used for education but only if used in appropriate ways </li></ul>OR X
