A process for achieving self-supervised learning by integrating information from multiple sources or reasoning methods.

Coordination refers both to the process of mapping between relevant visual and verbal information as well as to processes that keep relevant knowledge components active. For example, in geometry a student needs to map between text references to angles and their location in a diagram and will need to maintain the numerical (given or solved) value of that angle to use in problem solving.
