Exercise and Learning

 

I thought a post about how exercise can improve learning outcomes would be appropriate while also discussing digital media, virtual classrooms and other things of the sort found on this blog.

Just this morning I heard a conversation on CBC radio talking about how primary school children had improved learning outcomes when incorporating exercise while learning.  When counting to five for example they would be doing 5 jumping jacks!  The implications and applications could go far beyond that however.  Below is a link to the podcast, incredibly interesting stuff that gets you thinking!  Thoughts?
