Exploring the Embodied Affordances of Touch Screen Devices to Support Visuospatial Cognition and Engineering Learning

Wed, Oct 18, 7:00 to 7:50am EDT (7:00 to 7:50am EDT), AECT Virtual Sessions, Zoom Room 6

Short Description

This study explores how the embodied affordance of the touch-screen devices is associated with student learning of cryptology and cybersecurity knowledge through the mediation of visuospatial cognition. We investigated the association between the type of input (touch gesture input versus mouse input), student performance in two learning activities that engage visuospatial cognition, and student knowledge of cryptology and cybersecurity in a sample of upper elementary students.
