Tang, Xiaowei; Yang, Liu; Levin, Daniel M. – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
In this study, we explore how cross-linguistic differences can contribute to children's scientific thinking. We compared first and third grade Chinese students' pre-instructional ideas of the earth expressed in clinical interviews with that of their English-speaking and Greek-speaking counterparts (as recorded in the literature). Inspired by a…

Chen, Grace A. – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
This paper draws on Ahmed's construct of "affective economies" to explore the role of affect in explaining how marginalization becomes (re)produced in pre-service teachers' encounters with an actor playing a Kurdish refugee mother in a simulated parent-teacher conference. Through an interpretive case study of four matched-pair…

Vakil, Sepehr – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
While academic, cultural, and racial identities have been important concepts in sociocultural theories of learning and development, less attention has been given to political identity. Research on political identities in education tends to be limited to critical pedagogy or civic education contexts, leaving unexamined the role of political…

Nolen, Susan Bobbitt; Wetzstein, Lia; Goodell, Alexandra – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
Disciplinary activity in science is tool-mediated, and instructional designers often build in opportunities for students to use the conceptual and material tools of the discipline as they engage in activity. When this activity takes place in schools, students and teachers may modify or reject disciplinary tools to fit the goals of schooling. We…

Richards, Jennifer; Elby, Andrew; Luna, Melissa J.; Robertson, Amy D.; Levin, Daniel M.; Nyeggen, Colleen G. – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
Mathematics and science education researchers focused on teacher education emphasize attention and responsiveness to student thinking as central to effective classroom practice. Being responsive to student thinking involves attending to the substance of students' ideas--the meaning students are making--and pursuing that thinking, adjusting the…

Radinsky, Josh – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
Learning in data-rich environments has been a focus of learning sciences research since the inception of the field, with increasing interest in the ways learners "narrate data." This article examines the narration of data from the perspective of "learning on the move," identifying mobilities of data, and of the narratives in…

Kelton, Molly L.; Ma, Jasmine Y. – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
In this article, we report on a video-based field study of an intergenerational family's enactment of a mathematical object (a torus) in the context of an immersive mathematics exhibition in a science center. To do this, we center interwoven, multi-party mobilities at multiple scales--walking, gesturing, touching, and postural adjustments -- as…

Hall, Rogers; Shapiro, Ben Rydal; Hostetler, Andrew; Lubbock, Helen; Owens, David; Daw, Colleen; Fisher, Douglas – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
In this article, we introduce and analyze learning experiences made possible by a teaching framework that we have developed and call "digital spatial story lines" (DSSLs). DSSLs offer a novel approach to learning on the move by engaging learners with related conceptual practices of archival curation, digital mapping, and the production…

Marin, Ananda Maria – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
There is a growing corpus of research in the educational sciences that explores the multiple ways in which mobility, or people's movement from place to place and through places, both constitutes and influences learning. Ambulatory methods and walking interviews are increasingly being used by social scientists and performance researchers to…

Marin, Ananda; Taylor, Katie Headrick; Shapiro, Ben Rydal; Hall, Rogers – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
Mobility provides the fabric of everyday life but is rarely considered part of learning and is almost never used as relevant, experiential content in teaching. This special issue integrates ideas and efforts across different fields into a more unified framework to study and design for what we call Learning on the Move. Approaches used in these…

Gutiérrez, Kris D. – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
Considering the special issue on learning-on-the move in light of earlier work on learning as movement, this commentary reflects on how the articles in the special issue expand the field's theoretical matrix of the sociohistorical, cognitive, sociopolitical, sociocultural, relational, and spatial. Taken together, they tease out new subject-object,…

Taylor, Katie Headrick – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
In community planning, the consequence of a failed or productive teaching and learning interaction could mean the preservation or destruction of someone's house, a neighborhood school, a park, all of it. This article elucidates consistencies in how people collaborate across spatial epistemologies and power imbalances for making recommendations and…

Bang, Megan – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
This issue is particularly timely, in its plea to the field to understand that human learning and development have always been on the move--always migrating--even if and when we construct sedentarist bias and territorial boundaries of the nation-state as normative or when we remember or remake as "ambulatory we's" as we engage in…

White, Tobin – Cognition and Instruction, 2019
This article analyzes an episode of classroom mathematics activity mediated by graphing technology from 3 different theoretical perspectives. An important line of research in the learning sciences focuses on graphs as "inscriptions", foregrounding learners' interactions with and around the material properties of graphical displays.…

Vieira, Camilo; Magana, Alejandra J.; Roy, Anindya; Falk, Michael L. – Cognition and Instruction, 2019
Creating explanations is an important process for students, not only to make connections between novel information and background knowledge, but also to be able to communicate their understanding of any given topic. This article explores students' explanations in the context of computational science and engineering, an important interdisciplinary…
