Improving children’s Cognitive Modifiability through Mediated Learning and Dynamic Assessment within 3D Immersive Virtual Reality Environment

  • The objectives of this study were to examine (a) the effect of dynamic assessment (DA) in a 3D Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR) environment as compared with computerized 2D and noncomputerized (NC) situations on cognitive modifiability, and (b) the transfer effects of these conditions on more difficult problem solving administered two weeks later in a non-computerized environment. A sample of 117 children aged 6:6-9:0 years were randomly assigned into three experimental groups of DA conditions: 3D, 2D, and NC, and one control group (C). All groups received the pre- and post-teaching Analogies subtest of the Cognitive Modifiability Battery (CMB-AN). The experimental groups received a teaching phase in conditions similar to the pre-and post-teaching phases. The findings showed that cognitive modifiability, in a 3D IVR, was distinctively higher than in the two other experimental groups (2D computer group and NC group). It was also found that the 3D group showed significantly higher performance in transfer problems than theThe objectives of this study were to examine (a) the effect of dynamic assessment (DA) in a 3D Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR) environment as compared with computerized 2D and noncomputerized (NC) situations on cognitive modifiability, and (b) the transfer effects of these conditions on more difficult problem solving administered two weeks later in a non-computerized environment.
