Research at Carnegie Mellon University supports the idea that children, aged six to eight, learn better when they can relate what they see on screen with the physical world. They did an experiment with the physics of falling blocks, so I'd be cautious about generalizing their findings to all subjects, but again, it's great to see research in this area.
