Fizika: Active Learning Specialists

Watch Video

Mike Humphreys from Patrick Henry Elementary in Arlington VA was the first person to complete our course last summer and be certified as an Active Learning Specialist.

The video, produced by Arlington Public Schools, captures the impact of his active learning plan - at work - helping students learn while being active.

Mike is willing to talk with educators about his experience in the Active Learning Specialist Course and his efforts to integrate this approach into his work as an instructional leader.
