John’s CV MAGIC Lab
I am fascinated and intrigued by the possibilities that grounded and embodied cognition suggest for learning, and my research focuses on the design of learning interventions that use our bodies to help underrepresented young people from under-resourced communities learn math better. Specifically, I am investigating how learning activities that utilize different degrees of embodiment facilitate grounding within the instructional theory of concreteness fading, for the STEM domain of geometry.
