Move & Read - Research Project

Move & Read is a research project that aims to co-develop with teachers a programme of activities for early literacy that are physically active and align with the learning content (this is called embodied cognition). Move & Read brings together primary 1 teachers' expertise and considers their needs, their settings, and the facilitators and barriers they face when it comes to teaching early literacy in a physically active way. As part of the Move & Read project, it is important to support primary school teachers' professional learning and engagement with research evidence.

We offer a variety of online professional learning opportunities, helping the wider community by improving support for individuals and, in particular, teachers and parents so that children and young people continue to benefit from high-quality learning experiences.
