WHY KINESTHETIC LEARNING WORKS?
It is learning through activity, using a multitude of senses and stimuli followed by a combination of reporting (immediate) and reflection (thoughtful).
It promotes participants to Focus. The simple ball exercises are designed for the participant, whether coming from a stressful space or an emotional moment, to transform that consciousness into a present, pleasant moment. The result is a state of relaxed attention–-a place where optimal learning occurs.
The activities have been tested to make participants smile and laugh. Participants are more likely to practice and retain a skill if the activities are fun.
This method decreases the time to understand, apply, and master skills.
Different kinds of stimuli are introduced that are associated with learning. Lessons tend to be more vibrant and are remembered more easily over time. Just like never forgetting how to ride a bike, learning kinesthetically has an accuracy that lasts.
Evening of the Odds
By providing those who learn best via activity, a tangible, natural pathway to success is offered. How biased is the present system? Reportedly, up to nine out of ten primarily kinesthetic learners drop out of high school.
With the open-ended exercises and questions, the participant learns different methods to brainstorm.
Cooperation and Competition
Working together in small groups, both cooperation and competition are encouraged in solving questions/problems.
Community and Team-building
In small groups, students recognize that their point of view is vital to the group’s success, and self-isolation and social detachment are greatly reduced.
Observation skills are needed to improve descriptive writing skills.
Sharpens and enhances the ability to describe as well as making for a more response-able person.
Learning how to write clearly and concisely provides the tools to understand how to communicate orally in using a similar methodology.
