Abstract

Abstract: Individuals with attention deficit disorder experience dysfunction within two working memory subsystems: the phonological loop and the visuospatial sketchpad. With phonological memory functioning better than visuospatial memory, the redundancy of visual and audio information presented in multimedia could increase their cognitive load when using multimedia in instructional situations. This study will examine those effects. Understanding how individuals with ADHD process multimedia information will assist in the design of instruction for these individuals.
