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 research about kinesthetic learning continue to inform all facets of the Walkabouts platform.

Does Incorporating Physical Activity Really Improve Student Outcomes?

Getting kids moving helps them learn—and here’s the research to prove it. ActivEd founder Dr. Julian Reed is among the nation’s leading researchers exploring the relationship between issues such as obesity and academic achievement. The research clearly shows that an active education leads to:

• Increased student engagement and achievement
• Improved comportment
• Reduced behavior referrals
• Adoption of healthy habits and reduced obesity

Walkabouts do more than make language arts, math, and reading lessons fun. They also trigger students’ kinesthetic intelligence. Walkabouts are evidence-based, and each online adventure engages students in kinesthetic learning. To learn more about the scientific foundation of Walkabouts, check out our research articles, read our case studies, or watch the video case study below!

I love the Walkabouts that you made because they are so fun to do. Thank you for helping me learn.
