Teaching 21st Century Skills Through Physical Activity aligned with Academics and SEL
Expanded learning programs play a critical role in teaching today's youth 21st-century skills to excel both academically and in society. Active learning involves discussion, problem-solving, presentations, group work, role-play, debates, techniques that get students interacting with each other and engaging with the learning material. Active learning is proven to increase comprehension and utilization of these critical 21st-century skills. Often overlooked, is how traditional academic standards and social emotional-learning content can be integrated into physical activity in a fun and engaging way for K-8 students.

Physical activity aligned with academic standards and social-emotional learning is proven to increase student focus, increase academic performance, foster more student engagement in learning material, boost self-confidence, improve problem-solving skills, and even reduce the frequency of school nurse visits.

In this session, attendees will: (1) gain a better understanding of active learning, (2) how to foster active learning in expanded learning programs, (3) engage in an interactive discussion on current physical activity programming, sharing of best practices, and current barriers to physical activity in expanded learning, and (4) take away more than thirty applications of physical activities aligned with Math standards, English Language Arts Standards, and Social-Emotional Learning skills.
