Or whether our bodies may help us in learning.
During my Master project I’ve been working in the design and evaluation of an educational application aimed at supporting the learning of Archimedes’ principle through concrete and embodied experiences. Results proceeding from an experimental study carried out with 331 children show modest but noticeable improvements in test scores from children that played with the embodied interface, thus suggesting potential design directions for the development of educational games
