Welcome to ActivEd and Walkabouts! Our online platform makes it easy to create guided lessons that activate academic content with movement.

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

Walkabouts are on-demand adventures that transform math and language content into short, movement-rich activities for Pre-K through Second Grade students. This research-based online tool makes it easy for teachers and parents to create lessons that bring key concepts to life through physical activity. It even correlates to the state standards teachers already use to develop and manage their lesson planning. Plus, unlike traditional videos, Walkabouts are dynamic and 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.

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%.
