Tyler Johnson – Physical Education
Physical Activity in Classrooms
As a co-investigator in a team of colleagues from Boise State University, Dr. Johnson participated in the Physically Active Classrooms with Energizers (PACE) grant. Working with local schools, researchers evaluated how physical activity could be brought into classrooms, and created tools and tips to help teachers incorporate movement and physical activity into their lessons. The impact of using these techniques on educational outcomes was also tested.
