Movement breaks (EBBs) facilitate the restoration of neurotransmitters in the brain, increase arousal and stimulate neural connections, creating a more effective environment for learning. This may be beneficial to students in tertiary education as they are at high risk of ‘Mind Wandering’ during long online class periods facilitated by readily accessible technology.
Students and I have co-created an intervention which aims to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the effects and feasibility of EBBs in online tertiary education. To find out more, view the Research Protocol in the OSF link.
