Learning in Motion & CLD
Why play could be the answer
3-Credit | 6-Hours of Lecture + Additional Application
Play increases energy almost instantly, increases productivity, improves moods and behavior. This type of movement and recreational activities have a significantly greater impact on happiness than any other. Unlike organized sports, it lowers feelings of pressure to perform but “forces” focus in present time (the healing mindful state). The feeling of joy comes from the resulting increase in endogenous opioids. Add 3 minutes of play into any 20-minute segment of training and watch what happens to learning and attitude, I promise you’ll never go back.
Additional Application: Examples of various strategies and activities will be provided for you to choose from.
*Please Note: University credit is an additional fee. Please be sure to contact your district for credit requirements.
I wanted to take the time to express my gratitude for all that your courses did for me. This course helped shape our program & helped a lot of students.
I feel cheated that I did not have this information as a teacher/counselor until now. I think of the students I could have supported with this info and it frustrates me….. But I will start immediately I will be using movement! Thanks again!
