Tools and Ideas for Engaging Students Through Active Learning
Incorporating physical activity into learning helps students manage feelings of anxiety and social isolation, improve concentration and motivation, and reduce sedentary time while also benefiting their academic performance. During COVID-19, teachers are faced with unique challenges of engaging students in a virtual environment and/or physically distanced and behind a mask. Integrating movement into the school day is a simple strategy to achieve engagement, connectedness, and community, no matter the learning environment.

Springboard to Active Schools has developed two new resources to help teachers and caregivers easily integrate physical activity with a safety, inclusion, and equity lens in different learning settings. The first resource, Considerations for Classroom Physical Activity during COVID-19, outlines considerations to keep in mind when integrating classroom physical activity to promote a culture of active engagement and learning; and the second resource, Classroom Physical Activity Ideas and Tips, provides tips on how to effectively engage students in active learning, and printable sheets of easy-to-use and adaptable activity/energizer cards for different grade levels and learning settings (in-person vs. virtual).

During this interactive webinar, presenters will provide both an in-depth look at these newly released resources and model using and adapting the printable energizer cards. Through this webinar, attendees will:
• Learn about the benefits of classroom physical activity and what to consider when integrating classroom physical activity;
• Explore considerations for incorporating physical activity safely and equitably during the COVID-19 pandemic;
• Practice activity ideas and consider ways to adapt activities in different classroom settings; and
• Explore how to use the new resources to support school administrators, teachers, and parents/caregivers.
