TWEET: How wearing slippers at school could improve perfomance

“Prof Heppell researched the topic for more than 10 years in 25 countries.  Shoeless learning has been carried out in schools in Scandinavia and New Zealand and learning centres in other countries.

“Mrs Tichener said: “We are noticing that the children seem more relaxed and calmer than usual, we hope that in time we can measure their progress and see if it has made a difference in their achievements.”

I wonder if there are some parallels here in gamification of learning, informal versus formal style of e-learning etc. in that they might also provide a more relaxed environment.
