My students are very energetic, they love to learn, move and inquire. They are 6-7 years old curious and active kids on an IB Dual Language class.
"Be the change you want to see in the world," - Mahatma Gandhi.
In past years, I have incorporated movement and STEAM activities into my classroom, proving that exercise facilitates students learning, especially for those students with a learning disability. And that STEAM activities help them think out of the box and providing them with strategies for problem-solving
The Action based training will allow me to help my students in all subjects and needs. Since, by adding movement into the classroom, we not only keep them engaged, but also we build new paths in the brain facilitating the learning process.
Also, Action Based Learning, helps all students, no matter their background, age, language or special needs.
Students tend to be more aware of their learning when they are engaged. Action-based learning motivates students making their learning meaningful and as a consequence, transforming it into a life-long concept.
Finally, as a society, we have been taking away the space to move and explore with our kids. Houses have no big yards, it's not safe to be outside, etc. ABL allows them to have that space in the classroom.
