Abstract

Active video games or exergames have been all the rage as they promote the physical player activity of mimicked sport.

As a result heath an physical education teachers have used this technology in the classroom to encourage their students to move however, research from the University of Tasmania has found these exergames should not replace physical education.

DR SCOTT PEDERSEN, Senior Lecturer in Motor Behaviour at the University of Tasmania, spoke to Louise Saunders about the research.
