Abstract: The proposed dynamic presentation scheme for learning environments discussed within this paper serves as an investigation into how high school-level content (i.e. geography) may be presented so that it addresses and adapts to the comprehension level, existing knowledge base and worldview of individual students, and may be comprehended quickly and clearly, as well. The spatio-temporal arrangement of the content is intended to respond to the relative preparedness of students to comprehend particular content, as well as the nature and complexity of joint comprehension of multi-modal content. The richness of the learning environment is dependant upon the simultaneous presentation of associated textual, visual and auditory information. The environment offers individual students some opportunity to process information in an active manner, through analysis and synthesis of associated sets of content into a thorough and holistic conceptual understanding (i.e. of the causes and effects of population density).
