Sometimes it can be difficult for children to focus and remain calm when in the classroom. However, studies have suggested that moderate exercise, around 20 minutes of it, can help children concentrate and behave during class. These studies prove that aerobic exercise can make children more focused and less impulsive. For example, when challenged with cognitive tasks that require lots of concentration and attentional control, children with higher aerobic fitness have performed with more accuracy, and sometimes with even faster reaction times
The fun and engaging game design of Activall allows children to enjoy themselves while exercising and improving their cognitive skills. Playing Activall at break or lunch times could result in calmer more focused and well-behaved children which could boost the productivity of their classroom.
‘We have used it for behaviour management – in particular with 2 children who tend to hit – if they have come in cross in the morning and have started hitting out we have taken them straight over to the board to hit that instead.’
‘To engage and help (a pupil with challenging behaviour) burn off some energy in a more structured way as a sensory break in between adult-led activities’.
