Lisa Witt, President & Founder of WittFitt presented LEARNING IN MOTION

to administrative leaders at the RTM School Planning & Facilities Congress in Austin, TX April 28-30th, 2019.

Session Synopsis:

We know bodies are meant to move, but how do we create this environment?  Innovative school leaders and educators have been integrating movement into the classroom to enhance learning for students K-12.  Join us in discussing the benefits, and listening to the philosophy around creating new spaces, or transforming existing areas, that encourage active sitting and dynamic standing. “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 integrates and anchors new information and experience into our neural networks [Hanaford].”

Attendees will learn about WittFitt’s consultative approach, the benefits of active spaces, and will get time to share their own stories.
