The role of interactive visualizations in the development of concepts of logic.

Abstract : The main objective of the experiments described in this paper is to examine whether instructional variables often used in learning empirical sciences can also be used to facilitate the development of knowledge and skills in the formal sciences, particularly in learning logic. In learning empirical sciences, many positive effects have been reported which can be accounted for by the use of visualisation techniques, multiple representations and possibilities for the learners to interact with representations. It is our view, however, that formal sciences which are often described in a purely symbolic way, can also profit from these new techniques. This paper describes the effect of visualisations and interaction with these visualisations in learning logic. The results of the experiments described show that these instructional variables indeed lead to better learning effects.
