Individual differences and technology attributes: An examination of educational technology considerations related to trade and industry training
AbstractThis paper focuses on one of the major components of educational technology - instructional design. The paper deals with an examination of aspects of technology and learning which may have implications for future directions and developments in educational technology. It describes a study which examined the relationship between training technologies (computer and print) and individual learner differences (visual and haptic cognitive styles), in assisting learners' retention of information presented visually.
