Insights from our Teachers

“Each week I begin to think more about how I can engage the children’s senses during learning and I am starting to make connections… It is really getting me thinking more about how I teach Science in the classroom and how I can engage the students more through science activities”

Through talking with the teachers involved in the project, we have been able to distinguish some common themes. Please find them listed below. 

Teachers are enjoying using embodied cognition as methodology for teaching Science
Reconceptualisation of how they teach physics and science generally with embodied cognition now central and valued
Teachers assert that embodied cognition supports students in applying and developing scientific skills
Teachers assert that embodied cognition strategies support the development of students' scientific content knowledge
Teachers assert that using embodied cognition strategies supports the development of students' critical thinking skills
