Embodied Design

Embodied Activities

Embodied design genres

Inspired by embodied cognition approach, educational designers work within different design genres. They present mathematics through discovery-based sensory-motor activities. Yet, mathematical understanding might be grounded in different sources:

  • in a new motor coordination  (action-based embodied designs),
  • in a naive perception that is being developed towards cultural forms of seeing (perception-based embodied designs),
  • in bodily imitation of previously seen mathematical performance  (incorporation-based embodied designs), and so on.

We are actively exploring the variety and educational effect of possible embodied activities. Read more about different design genres here.
