Why Instant Recess?"We've engineered exercise
out of our daily lives. Now we have to engineer
it back in.
Shellie Pfohl, executive director of the
President's Council on Fitness, Sports,

What is Instant Recess?
  • Instant Recess (IR) is a 10-minute physical
    activity break designed for everyday use by
    everybody, anywhere, anytime, in any attire. IR
  • is a unique fusion of popular culture and science
    to promote physical and mental fitness.
  • involves movement of major muscle groups to
    increase blood flow throughout the body burn
    calories.
  • re-invigorates teachers and students to feel more
    alert and increase their energy levels.
  • Why IR? So you dont just be fat in a
    chair1st grader

Why Instant Recess?Getting kids to sit
shoulder to shoulder for six hours a day is not
going to do it, Dr. Yancey said. Even in
schools that still have 30-minute periods of
physical education or recess, many children get
only about five minutes of moderate to vigorous
activity.

Research QuestionsHow easily can Instant
Recess be implemented in and elementary
school?What are the effects of Instant Recess
on students?

Method
12
Procedure
  • Determined parameters of the study
  • Received informed consent from Principal Morgan
  • Spoke with teachers and gauged interest
  • Met in January and taught teachers how to do
    Instant Recess

13
Participants
  • WD Williams Elementary School
  • Swannanoa, NC
  • 13 out of 23 teachers participated during the
    8-week study
  • Kindergarten - 5th Grade (all grades represented
    approx. 22 students per classroom)

14
Data Collection
  • Research Assistants observed classrooms before,
    during and after IR
  • Teachers documentation
  • When IR break was implemented
  • Specific IR break used
  • Teacher observations
  • Interviews
  • Individual students
  • Teachers
  • Classes

15
Data Analysis
  • Preliminary qualitative phenomenological data
    analysis
  • Triangulation-cross-checking information and
    conclusions through the use of multiple
    procedures or sources
  • Major trends in the data
  • Milinki, A. K. (1999). Cases in qualitative
    research. Los Angeles, CA
  • Pyrczak Publishing.

Implementation
  • Teacher participation
  • Technology
  • Spacing
  • Schedule

18
Short-term Effects
  • Quick transitions back to work
  • Increased on-task behavior

  • Improved mood

It helps get the wiggles out before a test and
calms me down2nd grader
19
Long-term Effects
  • More physically fit
  • Increased coordination
  • Improved mood by mastery
  • Increased understanding
  • of Instant Recess

20
Discussion
  • Implications
  • Positive effect of physical activity in schools
  • Limitations
  • Not a random sample
  • Time constraints
  • Pilot study

21
Future Directions
  • Strategies to maximize IR to meet the needs of
    individual populations
  • Creating more videos based on student
    recommendations
  • Ease of teacher documentation
  • Quantitative data
