Embodied Learning

Embodied learning involves teaching with immersive, digital interactive games and has been researched and developed by academics at Arizona State University who have now developed SMALLab Learning, a company producing the SMALLab (a fully immersive, 3D interactive space) and Flow (an interactive tool based on the XBox Kinect add-on).

On my study tour of the US, I visited the following schools to investigate the ways they were using the SMALLab Learning systems:

  • Phoenix Country Day School – Phoenix, Arizona
  • Pardes Jewish Day School – Phoenix, Arizona

In addition, I spoke with Dr. Mina Jonhson-Glenberg about the technology and her research into it.
