Dual Coding Theory E Langhorst Dual Coding Theory E Langhorst Presentation Transcript

  • 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
  • Allan Paivio
    • Born December 1, 1941
    • Professor of Psychology at University of Western Ontario
    • Author of Dual Coding Theory
  • Origins of Theory
    • Paivio had subjects recall a list of words and a list of pictures
    • Pictures and words were recalled in a different order
    • Theory we process information in two separate channels
  • Audio Channel Visual Channel
  • Dual Coding Theory
    • Theory of cognition which states both visual and verbal information is processed separately
  • Example
    • Watching a television show with video footage of a rainforest while describing how the ecosystem works
  • Anderson & Bower (1973)
    • Verbal information can be enhanced when paired with a visual image, real or imagined.
  • Stone & Glock (1981)
    • College students were given written assembly instruction
    • Fewer errors when shown pictures with text
  • Levie & Lentz (1982)
    • Children learned more from text that was presented with illustrations
    • Learning increased by one-third with illustrations
  • Mayer & Sims (1994)
    • Multimedia can be effective when used for education but only if used in appropriate ways
    OR X
  • Idea #1
    • Use words and pictures rather than just words alone
    TEXT
  • Idea #2
    • Present pictures and corresponding words or narrations close together in space or time
    TEXT TEXT TEXT TEXT TEXT
  • Idea #3
    • Minimize irrelevant details
    • only display the most important information
  • Idea #4
    • Present words as speech rather than on-screen text
  • Implications
    • Incorporating the dual coding theory with the proper technology can make the educational process more powerful
