World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2010 (Jun 29, 2010) pp. 2989–2992
Elementary school students were taught to use LEGO NXT Mindstorm, a programmable reconfigurable robot, to observe and learn abstract physics concepts. Students were asked to use instructional embodiment to help programming LEGO robotics in a series...
Case Studies of Developing Programming Skills via Embodied Experiences in an After-School LEGO Robotics Program for Elementary School Students
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 2209–2216
This purpose of this study is to explore the role and potential of innovative teaching and learning methods, specifically direct embodiment and surrogate embodiment, in improving students’ understanding of abstract programming concepts. A case...
Enhance Understanding of Science Concepts with Technology-based Learning Tools (Programming and Hand-held Device) in a Lego Robotics Elementary After-School Classroom
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 2957–2961
The current study was designed to explore the possibilities of applying Icon-based programming and Bluetooth-controlled hand-held device into science learning activities. Through researchers’ observations, we examined whether using hand-held device...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 22, No. 6 (December 2013) pp. 825–837
Explanations are typically accompanied by hand gestures. While research has shown that gestures can help learners understand a particular concept, different learning effects in different types of gesture have been less understood. To address the...
Building Student Understanding and Interest in Science through Embodied Experiences with LEGO Robotics
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2011 (Jun 27, 2011) pp. 2225–2232
The purpose of this study was to examine whether embodied experiences with LEGO robotics can build elementary school students’ understanding of and interest in science learning. Previous studies have shown that many children do not enjoy learning...
