I just saw this on CNN, so forgive me for the lack of a link.
The idea is to get kids outside, and learn without sitting at a desk, while moving from station to station as the day goes on.
They measured calories burned, and of course it was higher than a regular school setting.
They also reported that the kids could learn better by being more activley involved in what's going on.
When I saw the clip on TV, it looked like it would be the perfect learning setting for a kid with ADD or ADHD. I know some people who have been diagnosed with ADD and I believe that they are some of the most intelligent people I know, and just need to be taught in a different way, other than the primitive way of the average public school.
Anyone else see this?
