This webinar presented the positive impact of nondisruptive physical activity in the classroom to increase student achievement, behavior, and health. Bob Hill, Education Manager at Ergotron, explored the role of low-level physical activity on the musculoskeletal, psycho-social, cardiovascular, and metabolic health of students, as well as their linkage to classroom performance. Bob also shared available grant-writing resources for adding height-adjustable and mobile student desks into the learning environment to put “enheightenment,” or daily movement, back into the classroom.
This presentation is designed for teachers, principals and administrators who are looking for innovative and practical ways to help unleash the potential of their students— and themselves— in a collaborative, flexible, and personalized way. The physical classroom plays a significant role in realizing the promise of personalized learning tools and 1:1 devices. This webinar demonstrated the essential role of classroom furniture in keeping apace of technology and learning styles.
Learn how to improve your own students’ health, behavior, and achievement through movement.
