The proposed project will address whether visual learners (students who prefer using their sense of vision) benefit from the opportunity to use visual materials (in this case, a mind map) more than students who prefer aural or kinesthetic modes of learning, or those who prefer to learn by reading/writing. Fleming's (Fleming & Mills, 1992) VARK (Visual, Aural, Read/Write, Kinesthetic) inventory will be used to assess students' preferred modality for learning. Participants will be able to choose whether to use a traditional outline-style table of contents or a mindmap to navigate a series of webpages about Piaget's work. A frequency count will allow a comparison of the number of "hits" received by the mindmap vs. the traditional outline. It is predicted that visual learners will choose the mindmap more frequently than will other learners. The results will have implications for the development of course materials.
