‘Embodied learning’ blends lessons with student-computer interaction

09/27/2012 – In an Elizabeth Forward Middle School classroom, students in an eighth-grade math class spent a recent morning getting into their lesson—literally.

Standing in their socks on a 15-by-15 game board that was projected onto a foam mat on the floor, they waved wands to move brightly colored virtual balls around the space. They used trial-and-error to figure out what each colored ball did when it came into contact with another. Did one ball bumping another cause it to multiply? Or did one eliminate another?

The students strive to develop a strategy to beat their opponents. What they end up doing, educators say, is honing skills related to reasoning, decision-making, and critical thinking. The teaching tactic is called embodied learning. It blends lessons and human-computer interaction.

    いよいよ安倍降ろしが始まるのか?ポスト安倍を狙っているのは町村だけではない。谷垣法相は日、自身の勉強会「有隣会」の会合で、安倍が前のめりになっている解釈改憲による集団的自衛権の行使容認について「憲法解釈は安定性がなければならない。手順や段取りなどプロセスの議論を欠くことはできない」と疑義を呈した特定秘密保護法の時にはダンマリを決め込んでいたのに、珍しく、安倍に盾突いてみせたのだ。党内では「安倍路線に批判的な古賀(誠元幹事長)に言わされているんだろう」とみられているが、実は財務省も谷垣を後押ししている…
