Research-Backed & Evidence-Based
Across the country, students are moving less and less. But recent research (from experts including our founder, Dr. Julian Reed) offers some good news: Active children aren’t just healthier, they learn better. Those benefits only increase with kinesthetic learning and integrated brain exercises!Read the research behind Walkabouts.
Fun for Students & Easy for Teachers
The Walkabouts platform was created to help kids move more — and learn more!

Walkabouts are perfect for classrooms with students who have different learning styles. Walkabouts can also be used in before- and afterschool programs and at home. Walkabouts don’t just increase students’ physical activity, they make language arts, math, and reading content come to life as movement-rich, kinesthetic learning exercises.

Activate Curriculum Both in & Out of Class
Walkabouts do what we all talk about in parent-teacher conferences: They engage each and every student! At Walkabouts, we aren’t just education and technology experts, we’re also parents — and we know that kids learn more, are more engaged, and are healthier when they are active both in and out of the classroom.Read about our mission.
