Spotlight on Strategies - Building Capacity

Strategy for the Week of January 4, 2016

As instructors we are always looking for practical knowledge and tools to create positive and lifelong learning. Time is of the essence in so many ways, I thought this would be a quick and easy way for you to browse and try some new strategies as we continue to develop our learner centered classrooms.

Move It - Embed a break into your lecture notes/power points, etc........

Move It is the easiest way to be reminded that you should integrate a break into your work online..Busy working on your computer? Spending hours searching the internet? Get active with Move It, the easiest way to be reminded that you should integrate a break into your work online. Simply add the Move It extension to your browser, set the notification interval, and your screen will present you with a random brain break and exercise to complete. Once you complete it, hit done and the next will arrive after the designated time.

Purpose

Incorporating movement-based activities can help learners of all ages articulate and internalize new ideas, and this process invites adult participants to leave their comfort zone and reexamine their roles as both teachers and learners.
