It is only recently that educators have understood the conceptual power of the artifact and the importance of museum environments in enhancing that power through real and virtual exhibitions. A new trend towards focusing on the importance of public education within the archaeological milieu combined with technological tools such as online researchable museum-based databases has increased the prospect of online learning in the social studies classroom. This study examines the importance of cognitive style to the instructional strategies used in the design and implementation of online educational materials. The purpose is to determine if a relationship exists between perception and the ability to conceptualize the historical context of the artifact in a virtual museum collection.
