SO, WHAT EXACTLY IS ABALL1?
Aball1 is a more involved form of learning. By learning through play, more parts of the brain are being used: vision, hearing, touch, feelings and motion. This type of unique engagement challenges the tradition classroom routine.
With a positive learning environment, Aball1 motivates everyone. This includes those who need a more kinesthetic approach or benefit from learning in groups, or kids who would usually not participate in sports.
Cooperation while learning also gives an opportunity for sharing knowledge, as the knowledgeable teach others what they know, and the less knowledgeable learn from their teammates. Everyone has a chance to participate with their unique abilities.

Let's get started!
Acquiring Aball1 is as simple as 3 steps:
Purchase your very own set of Aball1. One set includes 50 balls (25 red and 25 blue), your starter lesson plan book and 50 cones (to keep the balls put when you are trying to spell out words or solve equations!)
The Kinect team will return to your school to teach your staff how to use them.
You’re ready to rock and roll! Simply roll out the balls, pick an exercise from the exercise menu and get started.
We will stay in touch to continue to offer insights, support and advice. We will also have plenty more guides available for purchase as your class grows.
