Imagine being taught how to ride a bicycle. Instead of learning on an actual bike, however, you are taught with descriptions and diagrams, all the while sitting quietly at a desk. For some students, the descriptions are sufficient; for others, the pictures make sense. But for many, the idea of gripping handlebars and balancing on a seat while imagining you’re spinning your feet will not really click until they get on a bike. Few people would advocate teaching aspiring cyclists this way, and fewer still would advocate teaching this way if the goal was to inspire young people to fall in love with the joys of riding a bike. And yet, the more advanced we’ve become culturally and technologically, the more we’ve removed active, contextualized learning from elementary schools. Modern education is, sadly, more sedentary than ever. Kids are moving less, and students with learning differences and challenges are struggling more and more. Walkabouts is an online tool that allows teachers to create short, standards-aligned lessons that transform math and language content into short, movement-rich activities. The students are out of their seats and moving while they are learning. And a teacher can quickly assess a student’s level of understanding by the movement each student is asked to perform during a Walkabout lesson.
