This chapter examines the effects of computerized stroke order animation and visual chunking on character recognition and production. Through two experiments, the authors found that both computer-assisted presentation methods were effective, and their impact was comparable to or surpassed the traditional way of character learning through reading and writing. Specifically, animation was comparable to writing and more effective than reading in facilitating form recognition. Visual chunking produced better results in character production than writing when characters were presented in radical-based groups.
