  • Dewey's Action Based Learning Lab

    Posted by Carol Benesch at 1/12/2013
    "The Action Based Learning™ Lab is a motor development program based on the brain research that supports how movement improves brain function. The concepts in the ABL Lab meet the Physical Education National Standards and the Action Academic Content Cards meet the National Standards in reading and math. Although the underlying concepts remain constant, the program’s design is flexible and is modified or adapted to meet the needs of every student. "

    "Brain science strongly supports the link of movement to learning. The brain and body’s movement and learning systems are interdependent and interactive. For example, motor development provides the framework that the brain uses to sequence the patterns needed for academic concepts. The body’s vestibular system controls balance and spatial awareness and facilitates the students ability to place words and letters on a page. When a student walks or crawls on the "ABC Pathways" mat in specific patterns, the brain’s ability to encode symbols is increased. The four visuals fields needed for eye tracking is strengthened. Proper development and remediation of these systems are critical to a childs’ ability to learn."
