Descriptive Analysis of a Sixth-Grade Turkish Science Text With Recommendations for Development of Future E-Resources for Multi-Touch Tablets
Save to My Collections
This study investigates a sixth-grade Turkish science for the integration of text and graphical representations, compares that analysis to a similar analysis of four U. S. Texts using the Graphical Analysis Protocol (GAP) (Slough, McTigue, Kim, & Jennings, 2010), and makes specific recommendations for the future development of e-learning resources for multi-touch tablets which are planned for implementation in Turkey. Preliminary analysis of the Turkish textbook indicates that the text is similar to the comparable U. S. texts with somewhat better integration of text and graphics and recommends for inclusion of more interactive graphical elements (e.g., hyperlinks, 3-D models, image maps, animations, videos, etc.) in future e-resources development.
