Move Your Body. Grow Your Mind Webinar
Wondering how movement helps to support diverse learners in the 21st century classroom?
Facilitated by Jackie Bartell, M. Ed.
This Webinar will share how movement allows students to access curriculum in a well-regulated way. Students come to the classroom with a variety of sensory systems, and when the brain is not processing sensory input well, it is usually not directing behavior effectively. Movement and sensory input helps students to process their environment in a way that activates learning and engagement. Creating learning environments that facilitate sensory organizing activities benefits all students and improves educational outcomes.
