Why just talk about it, when you can walk about it?!

Walkabouts are on-demand adventures that transform math, language, and literacy concepts into short, movement-rich educational activities for young students. This groundbreaking online tool, which is based on decades of proven research, makes it easy for teachers and parents to create lessons that bring key educational standards to life through physical activity. Plus, unlike traditional videos or static lessons, Walkabouts are different every time they play. Watch as one is created and played here.

Across the country, students are moving less and less. They're learning less, too. But recent research (from experts like our founder, Dr. Julian Reed) offers some good news: Physically active children aren’t just healthier, they learn better.

The Walkabouts platform was created to help kids move more — and learn more! Walkabouts are simple-to-use, cost-effective online lessons that help teachers, school systems and parents bring educational standards to life in fun, interactive ways.

Perfect for elementary classes as well as before school and afterschool programs, Walkabouts don’t just increase students’ physical activity, they make educational standards come to life as movement-rich exercises.

Once logged in, teachers and parents can select expert-suggested Walkabouts sorted by subject and state standards, or create their own. Within minutes, students will be out of their desks and engaged in an active lesson that integrates fundamental movements such as hopping, jumping, and running with math, language, and literacy content.

RESEARCH-BASED. CLASSROOM TESTED.

ActivEd and Walkabouts were inspired by years of published research about both education and health — and the correlation between the two. In fact, ActivEd founder Dr. Julian Reed is among the nation’s leading researchers exploring the relationship between issues such as obesity, cognition and academic achievement. Dr. Reed’s findings and his work helping equip and empower teachers across the country continue to inform all facets of the Walkabouts platform.
A recent study showed that active kids are 20% more likely than their sedentary peers to earn an A in math or language.

A North Carolina study of elementary students found that activity breaks increased on-task behavior by up to 20%.
