  • PLAY4 School: ExerLearning and TEAMe3 is a teacher implementation and training manual geared to the classroom teacher. The goal is to create a culture of physical activity advocates from among the largest majority of teachers in a school – the classroom teachers, administration and staff.
  • Research has proven time and again that regular participation in physical activity throughout every school day – even in bursts as short as 10 minutes can provide the cognitive development, academic success, behavior change, engagement, productivity and attendance classroom teachers and administration need and want for every student.
  • Too often we focus on the challenge of overweight and obesity among our students when we discuss and advocate for physical activity interventions.
  • For more than two decades Judy Shasek has ventured in to the academic classroom and the workplace. Field studies and observation have made the obvious connection between how similarly our schools and the workplace create the work-environment. How much wasted time, energy and productivity will we tolerate before we make the connection between regular physical activity and success?
  • With the less than adequate pot of K-12 school funding being split between diverse factions and toward diverse goals within a school we all suffer – especially our students
  • PLAY4 School connects ExerLearning and a student-driven resource called TEAM e3 to a strategy for unique success. Rather than trying to deliver a program for every student, PLAY4 School and TEAM e3 provides an easy-to-implement solution model that is led and managed by the most challenged, challenging and expensive students in a school. How are these students expensive? They take the greatest amount of funding and time, while delivering less than optimal outcomes.
  • Who are these students? They are the disengaged, the under-achieving, truant or regularly absent or acting out. They are the gifted and under-inspired.
  • The very same students who are the greatest challenge are also our greatest resource. The key is to understand how to connect physical activity participation they need to the outcomes teachers and administrators want – all the while making it as compelling and fun, turn key and easy to implement as possible. That is where PLAY4, ExerLearning and TEAM e3 come in.
  • Describe what TEAM e3 is
  • Why add exergames to the classroom?
  • Why train the most challenged or challenging students to lead and manage the program?
  • What are the deliverables for a school implementing the program? How does that help with the health and PE goals and agenda?
  • How can TEAM e3 students provide funding opportunities for the school? They can teach employers, HR, family members and wellness sponsors what they are doing at school, why they are doing it and share true stories about how they are changed.
  • Once community and wellness sponsors connect productivity and a community’s economic wealth with the outcomes students are providing at school – while the program reduces costs and improves academic success – funding will occur.
  • Our nation’s economic health depends on how our youth can lead wellness culture change – Health and PE leaders cannot do this alone – it takes the entire school community. Only then can the success feed benefits to the community and funding support back to the school
