Ready to Learn: Movement & Learning Workshop
Date: Monday, 28 August 2017
Time: 4.30pm - 6.30pm
Venue: Thebarton Community Centre
This workshop will provide you with practical activities that you can undertake with your class when you return to school the next day. We will introduce you to “brain energises’ that will get your students out of their seats to participate in fun challenges before settling down to their academic work.
There are strong connections between physical education, movement, breaking sedentary behaviours, break times (recess & lunch), and improved cognition and learning. At this workshop we’ll provide both the theory and practical on how regular movement during the school day can be an effective cognitive strategy to strengthen learning, improve memory and enhance the motivation learn.
You’ll discover what neuro-science is telling us about movement and learning and be provided with a range of easy to implement activities that will get you class enthused and ready to learn.
Facilitated by: Rick Baldock, ACHPER (SA)
