I would like to implement a Hearmath station in every classroom at Truckee Elementary School. Heartmath was brought to TTUSD five years ago as another way counselors can help students self-regulate their emotions and calm down. Heartmath is based on 25 years of scientific research of looking at the psychophysiology of stress, emotions, and the interactions between the heart and the brain. Heartmath, through the use of an em wave pro sensor clipped on to the earlobe, enables a student to see their heartbeat on a computer screen and see right away if they are calm, getting calm, or not calm at all and get to a place of being calm in just a few minutes. Once calm, the student is able to get back to learning in a positive state of mind.
Specifically, I would like to request 26 laptops and sensors in order to have a dedicated system available for the students to use the Heartmath equipment and games in order to self regulate their emotions and ability to make positive choices.
