Sports are not only useful for helping to keep fit but also for learning. Memory, concentration, attention, improve thanks to constant physical exercise, which can also alleviate depression and anxiety disorders. Sports play a specific role also in adult education, to the point that some new teaching methods for adults with specific learning needs are often associated with psychomotor coordination.
All this is dealt with in Epale’s August thematic focus by showcasing projects and good practices from various European countries on the online European platform. Case studies, articles and resources on sports education will be available on the launch page of Epale’s sports focus.
