Rethinking movement in educational spaces
This inspiring talk considers the benefits of being able to move naturally within a learning environment. We will explore how to create environments for students and teachers which give permission for more natural physical movement within schools and other educational settings. We will discuss the importance of movement for wellbeing and the implications for learning, informed consent and healthy development.
