What is embodied cognition in science education?
FAQ · 14 April 2022
Embodied cognition in science education serves as an umbrella term for different approaches to bodily learning processes in science. The study of embodied cognition builds on the assumption that we can improve our understanding of the mind by characterising the role of the body in cognition. Science education provides a vital proving ground for embodied theories of cognition: science deals with the world around us & learners understand & experience this world through & with their bodies.
