Movement, as a tool for the development and enhancement of cognitive functions, is the key to the development and implementation of Neuroeducation in Physical Education. A novel concept of enormous importance for the quality of life of students”

master neuroeducacion educacion fisica Tech Universidad

Science has advanced in the study of the brain as a learning organ, with the aim of helping each student to develop their cognitive, intellectual and emotional potential to the fullest. Although current education aims at a comprehensive education, it is still focused on cognitive aspects, with little development in terms of emotional aspects; little and/or no management of one's own and others' emotions, little self-motivation and self-control, and communication skills.

This program arises with the purpose of expanding the benefits that can be offered from the subject of physical education to students, from the perspective of sports performance, academic performance, and also in relation to personal development based on physical and emotional well-being. This is based on the new knowledge of brain science to focus, in a practical way, on how to implement it in the reality of educational centers. 

Physical Education acquires a dimension of extraordinary importance, transcending the important objectives of developing motor skills, to access the use of movement as a tool for the development and improvement of cognitive functions.

The prestigious professors of this program have deposited their specialized and advanced knowledge based on experience and rigorous scientific criteria in the development of this highly scientifically and academically rigorous training.  

All modules are accompanied by abundant iconography, with photos and videos by the authors, which are intended to illustrate, in a very practical, rigorous and useful way, advanced knowledge in neuroeducation and physical education for physical therapists.
