Multi-Scaffolding Environment: An Analysis of Scaffolding and Its Impact on Cognitive Load and Problem-Solving Ability
Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 37, Number 2, ISSN 0735-6331
A Multi-Scaffolding Environment (MSE) is a multimedia environment reliant on authentic scaffolding. We examine the impact of the availability of multiple scaffolds on learning and cognitive load within an MSE where learners are assigned a real-world task and given access to four support tools to help them complete the task. By examining an MSE in the area of geographic literacy, we explore the effectiveness of problem-based learning and whether multiple scaffolding is applicable to any content area. Quantitative and qualitative data indicate that a learner-controlled multi-scaffolding approach may be a valuable approach in problem-based learning contexts. (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
