Educate students in mind and body―and optimize their success. Technology offers exciting new opportunities and challenges to you and your students; movement is essential to their learning. But screen time often comes at the expense of physical activity. Enter a blended instructional approach that combines kinesthetic teaching methodologies with technological resources to meet content standards, increase achievement and test scores, and enrich the learning process, promoting students’ social, physical, mental, emotional, and cognitive growth. Here you’ll find: a neuroscientific overview of the powerful brain-body connection; step-by-step instructions for balancing movement and the use of technology in the classroom; practical tools, templates, and vignettes to ensure successful implementation; and classroom management tactics and useful remedies for common problems.
