Abstract: In this study we examine the effects of how instructors and students use gestures to coordinate concept information for science learning. The findings reveal that as gesture use can be an effective instructional method, gestures as teaching and learning resources are only as valuable as they are visible. We conclude our study by encouraging new instructional designs that make use of the affordances of gestures in coordinating representations and orienting visual perspectives.
