Open peer commentary on the article “Coordination Dynamics of Semiotic Mediation: A Functional Dynamic Systems Perspective on Mathematics Teaching/Learning” by Anna Shvarts & Dor Abrahamson. Abstract: Discussing the ideas of Bernstein, Shvarts, and Abrahamson, I suggest considering the more prominent role of Bernstein’s “repetition without repetition” principle in embodied learning. A vignette from an empirical study of co-construction activity illustrates the suggestion.
