Another study confirming that systematic use of gesture has a place in formal education--at least physics. The fact that the research focuses on problem solving, rather than memory/recall is important pedagogically. Ultimately, HIPoeces work should enhance listening, the "problem" of aural comprehension in real time. As reported in an earlier blog post, we have at this point only "off hand," anecdotal evidence in that direction from student reports, but a good empirical exploration of that consistent observation should not be too difficult to conduct.
