The Effects of Technology on Physical Education Classroom
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
The obesity pandemic is sweeping the world at an alarming rate. Poor food choices and lack of activity in children are helping providing the building blocks for this issue. With the increase of video games and computers, it is important to identify ways to incorporate these into physical activity. The purpose of this study was to find out what differences and similarities exist in students’ attitudes, motivation, and heart rate levels when participating in the use of Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) versus traditional dance. Although not statistically significant, results indicated that students had a higher overall self-rated perception of enjoyment, work effort, motivation, and performance during the DDR activities than during the traditional dance. With a Physical Education focus of attaining as much physical activity by our students as possible, outside of school, it is important to identify activities they enjoy significantly.
