Summary

Three research projects focus on different aspects of movement and learning as a way to enhance teacher training.

The first project at Canterbury Christ Church University, looks into the importance of good posture and its impact on learning. It involves a partnership between teacher educators and occupational therapists.

The second project at the University of Warwick explores handwriting and its links with cognitive development. The research aims to be the first step towards designing an efficient screening mechanism for handwriting problems.

The final research project, based at Anglia Ruskin University, looks into the best way to teach movement education. It explores how to develop trainee teachers' ability to use movement to identify, assess and address children's holistic learning needs.

This is the last of three programmes exploring the work of educational researchers aiming to improve teacher training by developing projects relevant to Special Educational Needs.
