Movement in the Classroom: Making Movement the New Norm
Presenter: Lindsay Carl
Teachers are facing pressure to increase student performance on a number of state-mandated tests. This pressure has forced many schools and teachers to limit or completely get rid of free play times such as recess and even PE. Numerous studies, on the other hand, show that students who are more active, focus better, have stronger cognitive processing, and are more successful in memory retention. Students who move activate blood flow to the brain priming it for learning. Physically active lessons can increase time on task and attention to task. Physical activity is vital to learning, physical health, and neurological health. This session will outline the data that supports an active classroom and share simple ways to incorporate movement into everyday learning.
