A research team at Arizona State University has developed a platform for learning called the Situated Multimedia Arts Learning Lab (SMALLab). SMALLab is a mixed-reality virtual learning environment that allows the body to function as an expressive interface using dynamic visual, textual, physical, and sonic media. Several recent experiments in high school classrooms have demonstrated significant gains in learning when compared to regular instruction. We identify the elements of play in learning scenarios as a factor in SMALLab’s success and attempt to examine its relationship to learning within this context.
