Multimodalité et mémoire de travail

Abstract : The use of visuo-spatial and verbal components of working memory during multimedia comprehension is studied (i.e. the phonological loop and the visuo-spatial sketchpad). Results indicate that high knowledge students effectively understand multimedia information whatever the sensory mode in which verbal information is presented. In addition, dual-task paradigm methodology enables to show that multimedia comprehension specifically relies on verbal working memory, whereas visuo-spatial working memory seems not to influence the learning outcome. On the other hand, memory for verbal information appears to be constrained by the capacity of the phonological loop. Conversely, memory for iconic information makes use of the visuo-spatial sketchpad.
