Now THAT’S a Spin Class!

A Wake County, North Carolina math teacher, named Bethany Lambeth, has installed cycling machines under her students’ desks to help them concentrate.
She says the machines cost $150 a piece. “Before, they were drumming on their desks, they were touching other people, they don’t do that anymore. Their feet are getting the movement out. There has been a huge increase in the quality of our student’s work and a decrease in the amount of missing work. The kids are not picking on each other, they are not needing to walk around, they are not needing to go explore, they are able to get their activity out and get their work done. I think the world is changing a lot and the kids need to be able to do something different. “What we’ve been doing is not necessarily working.”
