Why does physical education matter?
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is a global advocate for equality in learning. UNESCO created the following infographic as part of the Quality Physical Education Policy Project. The project is dedicated to giving students across the world access to education. The infographic showcases how being active contributes to a 21st century education.
Our founder, Dr. Julian Reed, has dedicated his career to making sure all children can benefit from physical activity. At ActivEd, we create movement-rich lessons to help student achievement, but we also know that the continued benefits of active learning are much deeper and longer lasting.
