Promising University of Michigan Research on Classroom Physical Activity

Dr. Rebecca Hasson of University of Michigan is conducting a study called Active Classroom where she simulates a classroom environment but offers students various short-duration light, moderate, and vigorous intensity activities incorporated into sedentary periods.  Dr. Hasson hopes to provide information on the health and cognitive benefits of engaging students in quick activity breaks throughout the school day.  An exciting feature of this project is the collaboration with the architecture department in the design of active classrooms.  View a short video and read more about this exciting study here.
