[Infographic] Can you grade movement?

Educators are under increased pressure to improve test scores while at the same time, school budgets seem to be shrinking. This kind of challenge can lead to fewer opportunities for movement during the school day, even though research shows that reducing opportunities for physical activity in school limits a student’s ability to learn.

Ergotron’s new Infographic Making the Grade highlights this challenge:

Movement is an important part of brain function. At Ergotron we think that incorporating more physical activity into the school day is a positive way to move children in the right direction for learning and ultimately long-term success. If we can get students moving in the classroom on a regular basis, we can impact learning and future performance. The LearnFit™ Adjustable Standing Desk for students is an easy way to incorporate more natural movement throughout the day, especially when other active opportunities are disappearing.
