To Trace or Not to Trace: Human Movement and its Implications for Human Cognitive Architecture

<div>Dr Stoo Sepp, School of Education Seminar - Wednesday 20 October 2021.&nbsp;<br><p>Recent studies have suggested that the use of gestures and tactile body movements can enhance learning in a variety of domains. While many of these studies use paper-based materials, this seminar will describe a study that used tablet-based learning materials in the learning of geometry in schools. A discussion of novel methods, along with findings from the study will be presented. Following this, an overview of implications for how we think about physical engagement in the classroom as well as implications for conceptions of working and long term memory are presented.&nbsp;</p></div>
