Brief Summary:
Movement integration programs that incorporate physical activity into academics are widely available for teachers to use, and have been shown to provide meaningful amounts of physical activity, improve on-task behavior, enhance cognitive function, and increase standardized test scores of children. However, teachers rarely use these programs. This project aims to use product testing and development methodologies to test current movement integration programs, identify critical attributes of those programs that hinder or enhance uptake by teachers, and develop a novel movement integration program based on those attributes.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Pilot Test of MI Prototype
We will pilot test a Movement Integration product prototype with 60 elementary classroom teachers.
Behavioral: Prototype Movement Integration Product
A movement integration product prototype based on the findings from Aim 1 will be developed. Teacher will test the prototype Movement Integration Product in their classrooms for four weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Physical Activity [ Time Frame: 5 school days ]
    Change in self-reported use of movement integration strategies. Teachers will complete a weekly log of movement integration product implementation. To complete the log, each teacher will log onto a password-protected website. Teachers will indicate the number of minutes per day they used the MI product and academic subjects in which the MI product was used. If teachers fail to complete the log they will receive an email reminder.
