Enhancing Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Leaning through 3D Animation
Cognitive theory of Multimedia learning has been a widely used principle in education. However, with current technological advancements and usage, the teaching and learning trend of children’s have also changed with more dependability towards technology. This research work explores and implement the use of 3D Animation as tool for multimedia learning based on cognitive theory. This new dimension in cognitive learning, will foster the latest multimedia tools and application driven through 3D Animation, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. The three principles, that facilitate cognitive theory of multimedia learning using animation, addressed in this research are temporal contiguity principle (screening matching narration with animation simultaneously rather than successively), personalization principle (screening text or dialogs in casual form rather than formal style) and finally the multimedia principle (screen animation and audio narration together instead of just narration). The result of this new model would yield a new technique of educating the young children through 3D animation and virtual reality. The adaptation of cognitive theory through 3D animation as a source of multimedia learning with various key principles produces a reliable paradigm for educational enhancement.
