Abstract

There is increasing recognition amongst learning scie nces researchers of the critical role that the body plays in thinking and reasoning across contexts and across disciplines. This workshop brings ideas of embodied learning and embodied cognition to the design of instructional environments that engage learn ers in new ways of moving within, and acting upon, the physical world. Using data and artifacts from participants’ research and designs as a starting point, this workshop focuses on strategies for how to effectively leverage embodiment in learning activiti es in both technology and non-technology environments. Methodologies for studying/assessing the body’s role in learning are also addressed.
