Hear from Samuli Pentinniemi of PALOeducation on what functional classrooms are and how to set one up at your school. This is my vision of what all classrooms should be in the future; giving students the opportunity to take breaks during class to get up and move so that they can return to instruction with better focus. Read the description below to learn more about their organization and check out their website! Don't forget to rate/subscribe/share/review the show if you enjoyed it!
"PALOeducation is a Finnish expert organization for physical education and active learning. Our goal is to bring more physical activity into children´s everyday life. Even though our story is just beginning, we have years of strong experience in the field of physical education, coaching, training and consulting. We have been a part in developing active culture in the city of Jyväskylä, both in curriculum planning and in the everyday practices of schools. We have been a part of the Schools on the Move programme since its creation. We have also developed action cultures into our own community that have been nationally recognized and awarded."
