Coherence Analysis


Artifact Introduction: During our fifth week in multimedia class, we were to research the Coherence Principle of Multimedia Learning by reading our text and additional articles. We were to use the information that we acquired to develop a written analysis of the Coherence Principle to develop our own opinions and gain a true understanding of it. We were to do this by relating it to our own positive and negative experiences. We were also to identify and explain the relationship between this principle and other Multimedia Learning Principles and cognitive psychology that we’ve learned about.

Reflection of Learning/Standard Connection: The coherence principle states that individuals learn better when extraneous text, graphics, and audio are not used. In this paper, I have explored this principle in depth and connected it to previous learning and experiences in order to provide a complete and thorough analysis.

  • AECT Standard 1.3 Assessing/Evaluating: For this analysis  I had to assess and evaluate the coherence principle and it’s integration in multimedia and instructional materials.

About jasminequezada

I’m extremely lucky to call Boise Idaho, an outdoor haven of a beautiful little city, the place I call home. I teach 4th grade dual language. This means that I teach native English speakers, Spanish, and native Spanish speakers, English, by using both languages to teach the regular 4th grade curriculum to nine year old’s. I also have an extremely creative and inquisitive seven year old son who keeps me playing, laughing, and on my toes all day long, he is my favorite person. My boyfriend’s name is Victor and he is my partner in discovering the outdoors, which is why living in Boise is perfect for us! While I enjoy being outdoors, I also love technology and all of the doors it has opened to humanity to learn, grow, and evolve. This is why I consider it vital for myself as an educator to delve deeper into this technological world so I can continue to serve as a guide for my students, in their discovery of the world.
