SMALLab transforms any conventional room into an immersive, interactive learning environment where students are out of their seats and moving as they learn
SMALLab Learning, the leader in embodied learning environments, will showcase its immersive, interactive classroom during the Arizona State University + GSV Education Innovation Summit held April 6-8 in Scottsdale. SMALLab utilizes interactive media in classrooms to enhance K-12 students’ understanding across a broad range of topics such as math, physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, English language and performing arts.
“As a former professor at ASU, I am excited to return and showcase SMALLab Learning at this year’s ASU+GSV Summit,” said David Birchfield, CEO of SMALLab Learning. “Embodied learning engages all the senses and immerses the students into the content. At SMALLab, we are demonstrating how our interactive classrooms can empower teachers and educate students in the 21st Century.”
SMALLab’s embodied learning scenarios are kinesthetic, collaborative and multi-modal. They enable interactive learning that is engaging for students and has been demonstrated to significantly increase learning gains. There are more than 300 embodied learning activities in SMALLab’s diverse library and the number is rapidly growing. Additionally, educators can easily create their own learning activities with a minimum of technical expertise.
SMALLab’s motion-capture technology tracks students’ 3D movements as they learn in this captivating space. For example, as students are learning about a physics concept such as velocity, they can hear the sound of their actions getting faster. They can see graphs and equations that represent their motions in real time. They can feel the weight of an object in their hand as they interact in real physical space.
The 6th Annual ASU+GSV Summit is a dynamic, three-day convergence of industry leaders and visionaries that includes educators, investors, philanthropists and entrepreneurs representing disruptive education companies.
Founded in 2010, SMALLab Learning is poised for aggressive growth in 2015 through relationships with new partners. For more information, please visit www.SMALLabLearning.com.
