Current research indicates that coordinated mind-body exercises spark neurological benefits that facilitate the learning process. How might computer-assisted and web-based technologies help students become more active? Teachers and students from Winooski Middle School have created an on-line classroom-based movement program called Bushintai-Do for the Classroom (www.bushintai-do.com). This program, funded, in-part, by the Bay and Paul Foundations and Martial Way Self-Defense Center, offers a way for educators to integrate a motivational psycho-motor activity that promotes respect, perseverance, and self-control while using 21st Century technology. Bring your laptops, wear comfortable clothes, and be prepared for “active” learning.
