Euro 2016 is just around the corner. The 2016 UEFA European Championship has just started and will be the 15th edition of the championship. In this blog post we’re taking a look at active learning in schools and how schools can embrace Euro 2016 and use it to improve activity levels. But how can you use the upcoming tournament to teach key subjects at your school? Encourage active learning  With Euro 2016 starting over the weekend, we thought it would be a good idea to the positive impact that football can have in school. The main health benefits of playing football regularly are a reduction in serious illnesses such as heart disease and many more. Any exercise will reduce these health risks, but studies have shown that activities such as football can reduce these particular risks. Studies have also shown that children who play football or participate in sport at a young age are likely to carry on in later life and live a healthier lifestyle as a result. In addition to having a healthier lifestyle it is also shown that children have better concentration levels, they are not as fatigued as other pupils who do not do sport and as a result, tend to perform better in the classroom. With such a big event like Euro 2016 hot topic at the minute, it’s important to capitalise on this and display some content from the Anomaly Content Manager on to your screens for all of your pupils to see. How can Anomaly help? We have a lot of content which is dedicated to keeping your school active. With our easy to use Anomaly Content Manager, you can place content relevant to active learning, football, sports and anything similar with the click of a button. With sports days coming up in the later summer months, it’s never too late to utilise the Anomaly Content Manager. If you would like to incorporate any Anomaly technology and digital signage into your school, or find out more about our vast range of services in the education sector please do not hesitate to call us on 0844 579 0880 or alternatively you can email us on the usual address info@anomalygroup.co.uk Twitter | Facebook

Suggestions on how you can use digital signage is the topic of our most recent blog post. It’s important to make the most of your Anomaly screens as schools wind down for the summer months. Making sure you’re keeping on top of our monthly content and keeping active should be top priority during the month of June. In a previous blog post, we explained how schools can use their sport premium to explore new ideas and invest in Anomaly technology. Display relevant content As obvious as it sounds, displaying relevant content on your Anomaly screens is key to their success. It can often be difficult to constantly update the screens whilst keeping up with a busy school day. With the Anomaly content manager, it’s easy to update your Anomaly screens on the go. Got something specific you want playing? Browse and choose from hundreds of videos from our content library, or update your screens with messages relevant to what is going on at the current time. Can’t find a video on a certain subject? Get in touch with the office and our in-house graphics team can schedule to make it for you! As good as the Anomaly content manager sounds, it can also be difficult to keep up to date with it. That’s why at the end of every month we produce a blog post which outlines the content which is scheduled for the upcoming month. You can take a look at what’s been on in previous months in our blog. Promote active learning New plans by the government state that: “schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer”. In response to this, why not use Anomaly screens to promote active learning? We have content which is tailored to improve activity levels in schools. We’ve worked in partnership with UK Sports Coaching to display their content on our screens. The content is interactive so pupils can dance along with things that are happening on the screen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VAvut42bNE If you would like to incorporate any Anomaly technology into your school, or find out more about our vast range of services in the education sector please do not hesitate to call us on 0844 579 0880 or alternatively you can email us on the usual address info@anomalygroup.co.uk Twitter | Facebook

The new football season is upon us with the FA community shield taking place this Sunday. With Chelsea winning the premier league last season with eight point cushion over second placed Manchester City and Arsenal winning the FA cup. The two will meet this Sunday at the Wembley stadium to kick off at 3PM, with Arsenal looking to retain the FA community shield. But how can schools promote active learning in relation to the FA community shield? Using Anomaly screens, schools will be able to tailor specific content to be streamed with ease.  With Anomaly screens it’s easy to tailor content to fit the school curriculum. It’s important to plan for the new term during the summer time.  Why not promote active learning following the students return to school in relation to the FA community shield?
