Embodied Learning demo's by Creative Learning Lab

Society and education are highly cognitive, whereas the body plays an important role in learning. How can the body be adressed in learning processes and what role can it play in enriching education and fostering 21st century skills, such as collaboration, focus and creativity?

Discover it yourself

In order to answer these questions, Waag's Creative Learning Lab developed prototypes, concepts and focused on user centered design within the COMMIT/ project. Cilinder Trap Wip is a series of balance objects, developed to enhance corporal literacy and to foster soft skills, such as collaboration, creativity and focus. Mood Room is a physical space where wordless, visual communication of emotions can be displayed by embodied interaction.
