Cognitive Effects of Argument Visualization Tools

Title: Cognitive Effects of Argument Visualization Tools
Format: Conference
Publication Date: 2011
Description: External representations play a crucial role in learning. At the same time, cognitive load theory suggests that the possibility of learning depends on limited resources of the working memory and on cognitive load imposed by instructional design and representation tools. Both these observations motivate a critical look at Computer-Supported Argument Visualization (CSAV) tools that are supposed to facilitate learning. This paper uses cognitive load theory to compare the cognitive efficacy of Rationale 2 and AGORA.
