How embodied interactions manifest themselves during collaborative learning in classroom settings

© ISLS. New physical computing toolkits offer much promise for promoting collaborative learning by engendering embodied interactions that can support collaborative discovery. To examine how these can unfold during a learning activity, we conducted a classroom study where pairs of children explored mappings between various sensors and actuators embedded in a physical-digital artifact. We found how a number of embodied interactions emerged that were effectively used to progress learning through the processes of showing, sharing and contesting.
