  "description": "<p>Despite the affordances of technology-enhanced embodied learning, its integration in mainstream education is currently at slow pace given that in-service teachers are reluctant to adopt this innovation. This exploratory study in-vestigated the concerns of 31 in-service primary education teachers, who took part in a Professional Development (PD) programme, using a questionnaire grounded in the Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) about the adoption of technology-enhanced embodied learning. The findings of this study indicated that, at the outset of the PD programme, the participating teachers had relatively few personal and management concerns; in contrast, they were highly concerned about obtaining more information, collaborating with other colleagues as well as about expanding the innovation further. Teachers&rsquo; participation in the PD pro-gramme had a significant impact on the mitigation of these concerns. By the end of the PD programme teachers retained only some high-level concerns, which are essential for the sustainability of technology-enhanced embodied learning.</p>",
