Physical activity is connected to wellbeing and health in many ways. In recent years, research has found that physical activity and fitness may positively affect learning, cognitive functions and brain health. We provide support for integrating physical activity into academic lessons in ways that support learning.
Wellbeing and learning
This project aims to enhance students' wellbeing skills and abilities to take care of their own health and wellbeing.
The multidiscipline research project Moving Maths aims to uncover the optimal ways to enhance learning via physical activity. The present study determines both acute and long-term the effects of physically active math lessons on learning outcomes, cognitive functions, affective school engagement, learning motivation, and motor skills.
