Action Based learning 101
Action Based Learning™ is based on the brain research that strongly supports the link between movement and learning. We know that healthy, active students, make better learners! So how do we apply this to the classroom? Action Based Learning provides educational training that focuses on creating an optimal learning environments for all students, through movement. ABL strategies are teacher friendly, time efficient, and most importantly - make learning fun for students. Students engaged in Action Based Learning show improved memory retention, increased focus and attention, improved grades, and less behavioral issues.
Learning Labs are designed to prepare the brain for learning. Each active learning station in the lab, applies what we know about the brain body connection by focusing on the 12 foundations of Learning Readiness. For example, the body’s vestibular system controls balance and spatial awareness. Strengthening these foundations facilitates the students ability to place words and letters on a page. When a student walks or crawls in specific patterns, the brain’s ability to encode symbols is increased. Proper development and remediation of these systems are critical to a childs’ ability to learn.
