On-demand: Educator Webinar on Standing Desks

Available on-demand! Access this free webinar to learn about the essential role of classroom furniture in keeping pace with technology and learning styles. CE certificate is available, offered in conjunction with edWeb.net and Big Deal Media.

The webinar panel includes Bob Hill, education manager at Ergotron who interviews Monica Escobar, fifth-grade arts and history teacher, and Jim Girard, seventh- and eighth-grade history teacher, both at Alexandria Day School, in Virginia.

All three presenters are passionate about reducing sedentary behavior and boosting academic performance in students. The teachers share their insights and experiences with introducing standing desks into the classroom. They address the pros and cons, the challenges and successes. You’ll have an opportunity to listen in as they answer questions from educators on how to create a collaborative, flexible, and personalized learning environment.

We offer educator resources  where you can learn about the research regarding “sitting disease,” grants and funding sources, and other information to support building the case for standing desks at your school.

You can also access last year’s School Moves! webinar on-demand; it focuses mainly on the metabolic health benefits and classroom engagement aspects of standing desks. (CE credit is available.)
