Abstract

The symposium is aimed at highlighting the role that the awareness about the mental processes which are activated and the control over such processes play in comprehending and memorizing notions presented through texts and pictures. The attempt is to support the notion that promoting metacognition could improve the effectiveness of multimedia tools. In fact, metacognition should bring students to develop adequate strategies to learn from text-picture combinations. The contributions included in the symposium present a set of different ways of interpreting the links between metacognition and multimedia learning and show a series of experimental approaches that can be followed to investigate such links.
