Open peer commentary on the article “Catching the Big Fish: A 4E-Cognition Approach to Creativity in STEAM Education” by Ronnie Videla, Tomas Veloz & María Carolina Pino. Abstract: 4E pedagogy is being promoted in the target article by Videla, Veloz, and Pino. In my commentary, the nature of teaching and whether or not 4E cognition is radical constructivist are discussed.
