Pedals, Problems and Pedagogy

Physical exercise is being touted as improving the ability to learn. According to Dutch researchers,  time spent actively moving enhances the ability to retain information like those times tables that kept eluding me as a youngster.  Seems it would have been better had I memorized them while pedaling my bike or jumping rope.

By throwing in some pedal powered bikes into the mix at schools,  we can save on the electrical bills and reduce our carbon footprint at the same time. Pedal power in schools; a win, win, win!
