Developing a Sociocultural Framework for Embodied Cognition

Speaker Information:

Joshua Danish

This talk by Joshua Danish, an associate professor of the Learning Sciences at Indiana University, will cover how the impact of an individual's embodied activity is linked to his or her sociocultural context, and how research focused on embodied cognition must address this. Danish will describe several recent studies of the Science through Technology Enhanced Play environment to illustrate this framework and explore its role in supporting the design of technology-rich learning interventions.

Danish's research explores how people learn in rich activity systems and focuses on how students benefit from working with representations of their ideas.

A light lunch will be provided at this event.
