What happens when I use meditation in the classroom?
Meditation can be described in many ways but is often defined as “thought upon a subject”. This action research studied the effects that meditation had on individuals and the dynamics of a project based biology class at High Tech High North County. The study examined what happened when meditation was first implemented in the form of “inward” meditation using breathing exercises over the course 3 months. The research then shifted to “outward” meditation using visualization for 2 months.
