Have 6-10 year olds? Get Involved!
We are currently inviting children between the ages of 6 and 10 to take part in activities at University College London where we explore how children learn maths concepts, such as counting and angles, by exploring these concepts through their body movement and gestures.
During the activities, children will play games that involve maths problem solving appropriate for their ages. The children will be asked to wear sensors that capture their body movement while playing these games. These sensors are typically used for fitness tracking and in computer gaming. They will be used to record how the children use body movement in solving the maths problems. These data will inform the design of technology to teach maths concepts to primary school children in novel and more playful and effective ways. The study has been approved by the research ethics committee of the university.
Each activity session will take up to 1 hour. We are able to cover bus or tube travel expenses to the university for the sessions.
To register interest or to learn more, please contact Temitayo Olugbade (firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to your help with our study. Thank you in advance.
