A paper by UW–Madison’s Mitchell Nathan and Michael Swart, co-written with Candace Walkington of Southern Methodist College (SMU), acquired the Worldwide Convention of the Studying Sciences (ICLS) Finest Design Paper award. Their paper, titled “Designs for Grounded and Embodied Mathematical Studying,” presents findings that converge on a number of design rules for embodied mathematical pondering and studying throughout 5 empirical, laboratory- and classroom-based research of highschool and faculty college students engaged in geometric reasoning and proof manufacturing.

Nathan is the Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of the Studying Sciences with the College of Schooling’s Division of Academic Psychology, and Swart is the director of the MAGIC Lab (Mathematical Motion and Gesture in Instruction and Cognition) in addition to a lead researcher with the Wisconsin Heart for Schooling Analysis, housed within the College of Schooling.

Walkington is an affiliate professor within the Division of Educating and Studying at SMU. Beforehand, she was an Institute of Schooling Sciences (IES) postdoctoral fellow in mathematical pondering, studying, and instruction at UW–Madison, and is co-PI on the grant from IES that funds a few of this analysis.

Hanall Sung

As well as, a paper by UW–Madison scholar Hanall Sung, and Swart and Nathan, acquired the Pc-Supported Collaborative Studying (CSCL) Naomi Miyake Finest Scholar Paper award. The paper, titled “Strategies for Analyzing Temporally Entangled Multimodal Information,” identifies two major approaches to analyzing multimodal knowledge in CSCL settings — triangulating and interleaving — and highlights the remaining challenges to unfolding the dynamic interaction between totally different modes with the consideration of temporality.

Sung is a PhD candidate within the Studying Sciences program within the Division of Academic Psychology. She research the advanced ways in which folks use language and their our bodies throughout in-person and on-line collaborations.

“To have two papers from my analysis group acknowledged on this method by my major scholarly neighborhood may be very affirming that the analysis we’re doing is necessary and impactful,” says Nathan. “These awards are as a lot a recognition of all of the members of the MAGIC Lab and our colleague Professor Candace Walkington at Southern Methodist College as it’s of the person authors on these papers.”
