Schools are just beginning to understand the advantages of using Exergaming in Exercise Learning Centers (ELCs) to support educational goals.
Exergaming uses state-of-the art video gaming equipment where one must move to play.
It can engage students who are otherwise reluctant to move to be physically active and thus have the benefits of exercise.
It allows an easy way to provide a quick bout of exercise to accommodate the students who need a quick "reboot" to reengage in class.
<- Adults, too!
