What has weakened their interest in studies is lack of achievement of the desired results despite having imparted great energy and time to their studies. This has been so because, despite their efforts and attempts to learn, the process of learning has been hindered by a lack of ability to develop concepts about various traits of the subjects. For example, young children face a lot of difficulty imagining the characters of a story in an English Literature class and their definition of relations between individual characters is so weak, that they can hardly go further in perceiving the proceedings of the story. Similarly, in a Chemistry class, young children encounter problems thinking what an atom might look like? What do ions look like? How would the ions be moving in a charged liquid? It is fundamentally because none of us has ever seen such a thing as atom with our naked eye. Same holds true for the realization of a cell in the human or plant body in a Biology class. Has any of us ever seen one of the cells that make up a human body? Or else DNA that is a fundamental part of genes? We can not be sure about the imagined image of something we never saw personally. Therefore, different students tend to develop different images of the same object in their minds that they never saw. How interactive multimedia affects young children.
