Retrieved October 23, 2008
In this blog they share research that is relevant to the adoption of exergaming in physical education at school. Common sense tells us that children are engaged by exergaming, the combination of exercise with video games. This post reports on this assumption under test.
This research was completed in July 2007 and set out to determine the free choice in activity of children aged between 7 and 11 yrs, when given three activity stations:
•Traditional games with no physical activity
•Exergaming stair step and cycle fitness machines on PlayStation 2
•Stair step and cycle fitness machines with no games connection
