KINAESTHETIC LEARNING 

 

The kinaesthetic learning modality suggests a preference for personal experience or practice of a concept. These learners are hands-on learners who prefer to create or make. They learn best when some sort of physical activity is involved.

 

The Concept Cube achieves kinaesthetic learning in a couple of ways. The student not only constructs a physical object that activates their learning but they are also required to produce five short videos, the content of which should show the student demonstrating in a concrete way application of the topic being explored.

 

For example, when explaining balanced and unbalanced forces, the student may film themselves interacting with a toy car and applying forces in one or more directions while explaining the resulting movement of the car.

 

The viewer of the Concept Cube also engages in kinaesthetic learning by interating with the physical, 3-dimensional cube and activiting augmented reality from the cube imagery.

 

The image below shows a screenshot of the Explain Everything video where the student has recorded an experiment demonstrating the electrostatic repulsion between two balloons that have been charged by rubbing them with a cloth. Annotations have been added over the video to assist in understanding the concept.
