During the second year, LSAAP explores with more intensity the aspects of learning in terms of “spatial thinking” and “structural thinking” but includes also a new field of study, which would be the “integration of theoretical concepts”. Concerning the first, this year LSAAP develops video recordings to monitor proprioceptive learning that is able to affect spatial vision, design and reading of spaces and ergonomics; concerning structural thinking, the tests include this time graphics and diagrams instead of images; And concerning the study dedicated to “theoretical concepts integration”, two groups are compared with conventional theoretical lessons and lessons where you can learn the same concepts somatically. The intention is to see if there are differences in the way in which the students integrate this information.
You can see the results of the years 2016-17 and this one 2017-18 within the paper that we were presenting at the International Conference “MOVEMENT: BRAIN, BODY, COGNITION” celebrated at Harvard Medical School in Boston by clicking here.
