JUST MOVE – Our well-being program for students and educators has officially launched! YAY!
-The focus areas are: social, emotional, and physical well-being.
-The students enjoy physical activities every day through a specific schedule that targets academic performance and well-being.
-The educators go through our “Athlete’s Mindset for Educators” program, which is Growth Mindset training for educators and teams.
-The educators are learning about neurotransmitters such as oxytocin, serotonin, endorphins, dopamine, and cortisol + practical and hands-on theory+practice on how to use that knowledge when creating relationships and learning experiences: -What happens, for example, in an oxytocin-rich room? There is trust. When there is trust learning is enhanced
-Students take agency and co-create the program as they progress in the program.
The Just Move program started as a science-based PLC and ran as a pilot during the school year 2019-2020 at the International School of Helsingborg, which is an IB school. The program is anchored in the IB PSPE curriculum. In August 2020 the program rolled out in all the Primary Years Programs grade 2-6. From January 2021 – and as a response to covid-19 – the program was enriched with the educator’s program too.
