Abstract [en]

Some discussions of kinesthetic learning activities include a distinction between (1) activities which involve students’ bodies as symbolic representations and (2) activities which incorporate students’ bodies as sensors for experiencing things such as forces and torques. In this poster, we go beyond this binary distinction to propose a theoretical interpretation of how the body can be included in physics learning. We then use our interpretation in discussing an example from a learning activity where a pair of students spontaneously recruited an embodied metaphor as part of their reasoning about binary stars.
