Abstract/摘要:

This report summarizes two experiments that explored whether the personalization principle mitigates the influence of seductive details in decorative graphics during multimedia instruction about the culture of a language. The results showed that decorative graphics increased learning during personalized instruction (Experiment 1), but impaired learning during impersonal instruction (Experiment 2). These findings add to research literature by showing that the instructional value of decorative graphics in multimedia instruction depends on the verbal-semantic context in which they are embedded. This research demonstrates that they are beneficial in personalized multimedia instruction, but detrimental in impersonal instruction.

本文旨在研究外语教学中,采用多媒体辅助文化知识学习中,个性化原则能否对装饰性图像效果进行调和。实验一的研究结果显示在个性化教学中,装饰性图像能提高教学效果,实验二的研究结果显示在非个性化教学中,装饰性图像有损教学效果。本文提出在多媒体辅助教学中,装饰性图像的教学效果依赖于语言的语义场景,装饰性图像有益于个性化的多媒体教学,但是对非个性化的多媒体教学无益。本文的研究对文献进行了补充,为教学实践提供了参考依据。
