This multidiscipline study 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.
Further, we examine the possible mediating mechanisms responsible for the positive effects of physical activity on learning. This study will respond to the societal need for developing new ways of pedagogical integration by providing practical materials to integrate physical activity into academic lessons in ways that support learning.
The three groups exposed to different teaching methods during math lessons are compared:
Ministry of Education and Culture
