Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Thomas M. Foster
This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, discusses how Cognitive Science has influenced physics education research and introduces the 'radical' notion of distributed cognition, which posits that our surroundings and tools have intelligence. After the introduction of this notion, the author discusses a few implications for physics education research.
