Brante, Eva Wennås; Olander, Mona Holmqvist; Nyström, Marcus – Journal of Visual Literacy, 2013
Multimodal learning materials are frequently met in education assuming enhanced learning outcomes. This study examined whether contrasts in such materials are likely to support reading comprehension for all readers. Young adults (n = 46) met either text-only or text+picture material. Participants (19 with low phonological awareness [PA] and 27…
