Learning from Media: Arguments, Analysis, and Evidence
Edited by Richard E. Clark, University of Southern California
This volume incorporates essays questioning the meta-analyses of computer-based instruction research, Robert Kozma’s counterpoint theory of “learning with media”, science-based technology verus experience-based craft and science-based “authentic technologies”.
This book presents a view of the historical development and current opinions in an ongoing debate about the role of instructional technology and media in learning and performance. The question driving the debate is whether media such as computers and television are able to influence the
learning of anything, by anyone, anywhere. In the early 1980s, I joined the debate with an article that claimed that all available research best supported the conclusion that there are no learning benefits to be had from any medium used for any instructional purpose for any learners in any setting.
