Mathematical Gesture of the Blind Students in the Calculate Operation of the Buner Learning Theory
Keywords:gesture, blind students, Bruner’s theory of learning.
Gesture is very closely related in everyday life, especially in the field of education. This study was applied to a blind person who is in blind type by applying Bruner's theory of learning in a counting operation. Based on this study, the gesture that emerged during the application of Buner learning theory was 85 times. It consists of 43 iconic gestures, 22 metaphoric gestures, and 20 times of an all-time gestures. With the percentage of iconic gesture emergence of 50.5%; Metaphorical gesture of 25.9%; and an in-23.6% gesture. At the imposition of the Buner's theory of learning can be the dominant kinaesthetic intellect among them storytelling, storytelling, singing, and Murotal.
