Supporting diverse learners in the 21st century classroom through movement is one way to allow students to access curriculum in a well-regulated way. Students come to the classroom with a variety of sensory systems, and when the brain is not processing sensory input well, it is usually not directing behavior effectively. Movement and sensory input helps students to process their environment in a way that activates learning and engagement. Creating learning environments that facilitate sensory organizing activities benefits all students and improves educational outcomes.
Learning Objective #1: Learn how systematic sensory input affects relationship building which promotes interactive learning in the classroom.
Learning Objective #2: Recognize how movement activates organization of sensory systems in the flexible learning environment.
Learning Objective #3: Understand the Sensory Modulation Continuum and how it impacts the students' capacity to be part of the classroom culture.
Learning Objective #4: Learn how to support these elements by designing systems in the flexible classroom that actively engage students.
