Learning Through Experience and Learning Through Media

by David R. Olson & Jerome S. Bruner - 1974

This paper is concerned broadly with the consequences of two types of experience which may be designated as direct experience and mediated experience, their partial equivalence and substitutability, and their differing potential roles in the intellectual development and acculturation of children. Our analysis will begin with the problem of the nature of direct experience and its effect on development. A clearer conception of the processes involved in direct experience will permit us to better examine the manner and extent to which mediate experience may complement, elaborate, and substitute for that direct experience.
