Active seating and movement in the classroom promote better circulation, improved attention and concentration (and often teacher’s patience!). The students love the opportunity to stay moving more than anyone.
WittFitt- Learning in Motion
“The more closely we consider the elaborate interplay of brain and body, the more clearly one compelling theme emerges; movement is essential to learning. Movement awakens and activates many of our mental capacities. Movement integrates and anchors new information and experience into our neural networks.”
