SMALLab Installed at MBE

Viking LogoThe SMALLab was recently installed at Moulton-Branch Elementary School and fifteen staff members were trained to use it. It was purchased by ABM, our LCS energy savings contractor. Due to the recent donation of a SMALLab (Student Multimedia Accelerated Learning Lab) teachers and students are up and moving as they learn at MBE. SMALLab provides opportunities for students to access and manipulate standards in many game-like and fun activities.

SMALLab development has resulted from years of research, supported in the early stages by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and Intel Research. The SMALLab website reports an 86% increase in student learning and a 33% improvement in teacher performance. MBE teachers and students are excited to be the first in this area to benefit from this 3D learning environment.
