TCA Description

Themes and goals:

It is well known that physical activity boosts brain health and is inseparable from cognitive development and mental health. "Active Bodies = Active Minds" stems from this holistic approach and focuses on integrating physical activity methods into Erasmus+ projects, institutions and personal life, and at the same time exploring the ways of how to make Erasmus+ projects more mobile.

The main goals of this thematic seminar are to:

•    Stimulate new ideas for Erasmus+ international cooperation projects, which would promote physical activity in educational institutions;
•    Raise awareness of the added value of sport and physical activity in education and training;
•    Exchange good practices;
•    Provide cross-sectoral networking opportunities on the topic of physical activity in Erasmus+ projects and educational institutions;
•    Participate in "Erasmus+ Run" event by joining Vilnius Marathon and raising awareness of Erasmus+ Programme.

Expected results:

The participants of this thematic seminar will:

       •    Establish new contacts for future Erasmus+ projects;
•    Experience working methods of how to increase the level of physical activity in the learning processes;
•    Explore good practices;
•    Build a community through joint experience with former and current Erasmus+ project participants and other stakeholders by participating in a mass grassroot sports event;
•    Gain a better understanding of the effects and the importance of physical activity as means to increasing the quality of their organisations' everyday life.

Additional information:

We await adult educators, VET teachers and school teachers of variuos subjects (such as, languages and literature, sciences, art or  any other subject), who are interested in teaching and learning methods we call "learning while moving".
