Fizika in Motion

Combining the science of learning with professional development for educators

Fizika’s approach is unique: a synthesis of the latest research on how our brains learn, coupled with leadership and team development, to ensure systemic change in the learning environment. The course is based on the following fundamental disciplines:

Physical Literacy

Originally authored by Dr. Margaret Whitehead in 1991, physical literacy emphasizes the importance of fundamental movement skills and their role in helping young people acquire the competence and desire to be physically active for life.
International Physical Literacy Association

Educational Neuroscience

Emerging field in neuroscience to understand how learning is optimized through brain pathways, chemistry in the brain, and the impact of physical movement on brain development.
