Active Learning Specialists play a vital role in designing strategies for incorporating physical movement into the learning process, helping classroom teachers, counselors, and athletic directors apply brain based research to help all students learn more effectively. With the advent of the common core and new teacher evaluation requirements, Active Learning Specialists can help principals implement effective teaching and learning methods that prepare students' brains for learning.
Based on research and informed by best practices, the Active Learning Specialist Certificate is designed to help educators incorporate physical literacy, educational neuroscience and cognitive psychology into the learning process to improve academic and health outcomes. An online learning course has been developed to provide teachers with knowledge and skills to create and implement an Active Learning Plan in their classroom, school, district or alternative educational setting. This course is self-paced and applied, with coaching and feedback from leading experts in the field of Active Learning. Developed by the innovators and thought leaders at Fizika Group, the course curriculum is balanced with research from the fields of physical science and education, and includes practical steps to develop meaningful classroom applications.
