What is Embodied Learning?

Embodied learning is an emerging field that blends the learning sciences and human computer interaction.  Cognitive scientists have discovered compelling evidence that nearly all of our experiences are in some way grounded in the body.  This suggests that the embodied experiences can lead to more effective learning.  Researchers who study human computer interaction are developing innovative new interfaces where physical movements can drive interactivity. SMALLab Learning is at the forefront of embodied learning.

Embodied learning has the potential to transform K-12 learning in schools, museums, and community centers.  We offer products for embodied learning including scenarios for our SMALLab and Flow.  Our learning scenarios have a record of demonstrated success by incorporating this technology in the classroom.  Embodied Learning is kinesthetic, collaborative, and multimodal.

Teaching with technology is not enough.  Our embodied learning platforms enable learning with technology in the classroom that is engaging and interesting to students.  By creating our content for both SMALLab and Flow, these lessons are available to a wide variety of classrooms today.
