Why Does Sitting Still Equal Learning? - Huffington Post

Why Does Sitting Still Equal Learning? - Huffington Post | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
Whether we're talking about preschool, elementary through secondary school, college, or even adult learners, I have serious objections to the idea that learning supposedly only comes via the eyes, the ears, and the seat of the pants. Schools -- and policymakers -- have for too long accepted the belief that learning best occurs while students are seated (and quiet, of course). The theory may have been understandable back when they didn't have the research to prove otherwise. But today we do.

Via John Evans
Lee Hall's insight:

Teachers tend to teach the way they were taught. We need them to make a conscious decision to change the way they teach to meet best practice.

Michail Darley's curator insight, October 8, 11:45 PM

This is really fascinating. No simple answers here, but it reinforces the view that sitting quietly alone at a desk is not a prerequisite for the best learning.

Bethan Greenhalgh's curator insight, October 9, 2:20 PM

I know that PE and the Dramanauts will have something to say! Churchill's standing desk is still in the PM's office - should we consider it? As someone with U6 lessons 10 & 11 on a Friday I say yes!

Marianne's Musings 's curator insight, October 14, 10:38 PM

Another great advantage we have as home educating families. Our children are not required to be seated all day. They learn in different places and in different positions, moving, observing, walking and on the trampoline! 

Love this quote from the article, " we have research demonstrating that sitting in a chair increases fatigue and reduces concentration (our bodies are designed to move, not sit). "
