The Lifestyle Chronicles - Everyday Health and Learning

Mayo Clinic and Dr. Levine again. This time they are testing a concept about classrooms. A chairless school with desks the children stand at and some learning technologies (iBook wireless notebook computers and iPods that play video) are the mechisms. The children, the teachers and the schools in Rochester have been eager to test the concept. They have had the assistance of business and organizations. Not only might this prevent or relieve the progress of obesity, it might improve the educational process.

The school districts of Greenville, Spartanburg and Pickens Counties in South Carolina have a project underway to promote healthy lifestyles and increase physical activity for kids. The project is called Zest Quest and it is conceived and directed by the Cliffs Communities with collaboration from the Cooper Clinic in Dallas.

These are innovative projects and we look forward to the results. Learning requires good health and good health is based upon learning.
