Children learn in many different ways. Some students are active while others are reflective. Some are sensing while others are intuitive. And of course, there are visual learners and verbal learners. While traditional education is biased towards reflective, sensing and verbal learners, Avatar Storytellers is much better at adapting to different learning styles.
Needless to say, visual learners will flourish in this 3D learning environment, but it has been my experience that even the students who do very well in a traditional learning environment, tend to fall in love with 3D learning in general, and with Avatar Storytellers in particular. The program was created with all types pf learning styles in mind and beautifully adjusts to multiple intelligences.
There’s a strong bias in traditional learning towards linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligences, but research shows that to succeed in life, other intelligences, including interpersonal intelligence, are just as important. Traditional learning tends to dismiss bodily and musical intelligences. 3D immersive education respects all types of intelligences.
Using an integrated approach to language arts and vocabulary skills strengthens children’s literacy skills beyond simply reading and writing. Avatar Storytellers stimulates students’ imagination and creativity, and focuses on creating original, technology-centered projects to promote literacy and writing skills.
Each Avatar Storytellers lesson uses visual art and technology to stimulate critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students have fun engaging in virtual world quests while improving their creative writing skills.
Learning experiences that integrate visual arts and technology enable children to more fully develop a wide range of language arts and writing skills. As an added bonus, they also advance in their knowledge and use of technology – a crucial skill for kids today.
