In today’s society, it is becoming increasingly hard to keep kids engaged...(the average attention span has decreased to 8 seconds — less than the 9 second attention span of your average goldfish!) With shorter attention spans, more sedentary lifestyles, and higher rates of anxiety and depression among youth, our mission at Moving EDGEucation is to help schools and teachers integrate Movement Based, Social/Emotional Learning Methods into their culture, teaching practice and delivery of various curriculum,
creating engaging, healthier, wellness focused learning environments for today's students.
We do this through Teacher Professional Development, Student Interactive Assemblies & Experiences, and Online Resources making integrated learning easy and sustainable on an ongoing basis in different subjects!
Now imagine a classroom where students learn up on their feet moving to music! That's the Moving EDGEucation way!! There are great benefits to applying our two key philosophies; Engaging the Body, Brain & Being while Learning and Celebrating Unity & Individuality as a Classroom Community!
Benefits for Wellbeing:
Our holistic approach increases Physical Activity & Physical Literacy, Creative Problem Solving, Decision Making, and Social Emotional Learning Skills like Confidence, Self Awareness, Healthy Peer Interaction, Positive Community and more! Check out our Full Interactive Framework to learn all about it!
Benefits for Learning:
Leaning by doing increases engagement and supports different learners while offering another outlet for a deeper understanding of concepts.
Neuroscientists have discovered that movement and cognition are powerfully connected! That means when we move, we learn!
The Moving EDGEucation Framework supports a wide variety of audiences and their unique needs
“It is vital that when educating our children’s brains we do not neglect to educate their hearts by nurturing their compassionate nature”
