If we want to create a culture of innovation and forward-thinking, we must focus on engaging our students and providing them with the true essence of education.
This starts with giving them access to the best tools and services, but it also means providing them the means to communicate. Education goes beyond the books and courses given, people are molded and grow as a result of the institutions they are a part of.
In2 provides you with the tools to improve overall physical health, mental health, and communication for both your faculty and students.
Building a Connection between Teachers & Students
Building a community starts with communication, students engaging with one another as well as with their teachers. The issue is the professional barrier that is assumed between students and teachers or even students and students. Sports is a great way to create camaraderie within the community. Groups of students challenging each other or even their teachers through sports events is a great way to encourage a positive culture.
In2 offers a platform for both students and teachers to communicate and challenge one another to friendly sports games. Students and faculty can set up matches and invite others to join.
Pursuing a Healthy Lifestyle
Another reason to encourage sports is the health benefits that come out of physical activity. According to Forbes, 37% of the youth are barely partaking in any physical activity at all, much less in youth sports leagues. A great deal of both students and teachers are preoccupied and barely find time to pursue a healthy lifestyle. By providing and encouraging a means to do so would greatly benefit the community.
The CDC states that “people should strive for at least 2 hours and 30 minutes (or 150 minutes total) of physical activity each week. Not getting enough physical activity can lead to heart disease and other heart disease risk factors, including obesity, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes.”
Are your students or faculty generally putting in that time?
In2 can help you encourage your students and teachers to lead a healthier lifestyle by facilitating the means to book classes and courts in a fun and engaging way. Have your students check sports classes offered by your facility and book them through your own branded app.
Boosting Your Physical & Mental Health
Sports goes a long way as not only does it boost physical health but also mental health. With the daily stresses that both students and teachers go through, physical activity offers a means to relieve that stress. Many students suffer from low self esteem; sports activities are a great way to build confidence. Not only this, it provides a means to interact with their fellow students; to break out of the cocoon they are shelled in.
According to a Canadian study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health “Youth who were involved in school sports had better scores on all three mental health assessments, compared with those who did not play sports at all. Therefore, the study found that playing school sports during adolescent years is significantly linked to lower depression symptoms, lower perceived stress, and better self-rated mental health in young adulthood.”
Promoting an overall Community
The conclusion is, education is more than the courses and books; it is the community that the members are truly honed by. Providing a platform that promotes overall community health and encourages camaraderie is essential for any educational institution.
That’s where In2 comes in; we provide a digital platform to communicate on as well as a facilitated means to conduct various sports activities.
