How can grandparents help keep students engaged in schoolwork and eager to learn more? Researchers say it’s something surprisingly simple: Play with them. Studies suggest that movement activities have a highly positive influence on a child’s overall physical activity and learning ability. Educational innovator Jim Marggraff, known to millions of kids as the inventor of the LeapPad (and the voice of The Narrator), is here to share fun facetime activities to help our kids become better students by enhancing their activities at home. He’s a serial inventor, entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, and an energized dad and husband. He holds 56 issued patents, is an Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year, one of MIT’s top 150 inventors, and was declared a Father of the Year by the National Father’s Day Council.
