Collinsville Education Foundation Sees Cameron Research Results
At their monthly meeting (Nov. 8th), The Collinsville Education Foundation trustees heard a report from Dr. Eileen Richardson and four of her Cameron University teaching students. The topic was results from their study of "Movement Opportunities In the Classroom" with four Collinsville 4th grade classroom being the subjects for the research. The CEF partially funded the effort which provided stand-up desks, stability balls, fidget bands, fidget tools, and Thera-putty in one classroom at a time. Student disciplinary issues were logged to hopefully determine if increased movement by the students helped their academic and behavioral focus. Overall the early results were encouraging.
