The Scientific Basis for Exploracise® Math Stars
The power of our Fun Wise® Exercise methodology lies in the way it uses 2 separate methods to strengthen the connections in the brain made during learning.
Learning with Multiple Senses
The first method takes advantage of the synergy that occurs when learning occurs using more than one sense. In our programs, the participant hears the educational information, views the educational content, and using exercise and active games, kinesthetically acts out the educational concept being described. Scientific studies of the brain have demonstrated the application of these concepts. When multiple senses are used to learn information, that information is learned significantly better and with better memory recall than when information is learned with only one sense. This allows information to be learned in a more efficient (requiring less time) and more comprehensive (better understood and retained) manner.
Neurological Benefits of Exercise
The second method takes advantage of the powerful growth factors for learning and memory created in the brain during exercise. These growth factors, BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) and IGF-1 (insulin growth factor 1) with others lead to the actual growth of new nerve cells and significant improvement in the connections between existing nerve cells in the brain The end result of these “new and improved” nerve cells is faster and better learning. The combination of multi-sense learning with neural growth factors produced during exercise allows the viewer of our educational program to learn the knowledge being presented faster and more completely than any other method in existence today.
The Exploracise® award winning products and programs use the best techniques of the 21st century to teach and help the children learn math concepts better and more comprehensively while getting quality healthful exercise.
