Exergaming PreConference Event at AAHPERD

The largest gathering of physical education professionals in the country will take place next week for the 127th National Convention of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) in Boston.

This will be the 2nd annual Let’s Move in School Showcase with more than 200 Boston Public School children showcasing the different ways they receive the nationally recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day with celebrity athletes cheering them on!

As a Preconference to the event some of the most renowned educators and professionals in the country will demonstrate the implementation of technology into physical education under the title 104 Exergame Workshop: United We Move Toward Active Games 4 Health.

This event will take place Tuesday, March 13th 2012 in Room 304/306 in the Convention Center from 8:00am-12:00pm.

This experiential, multidisciplinary workshop will focus on how exergames (video games that require physical exertion to play) can be used as a means to accumulate more physical activity in today’s sedentary society. Our panel will lead live demonstrations and competitions on the use and benefits of exergames in schools, fitness clubs, and at home. Don’t miss your chance to meet the leaders in exergaming from education, health care, advocacy, fitness, research, manufacturing, and marketing.

We hope you will join us for this wonderful opportunity to learn how technology is a significant part of physical education. Many thanks to Stephen Yang ( of SUNY Cortland for his continued work in making these workshops work! Follow Stephen on twitter @ExergameLab
