Article: Video Games That Keep Kids Fit

Time, Sep 13, 2007

Do enough dancing or kung-fu kicks, and you just might get the same level of exercise as from chasing a soccer ball… (click on link above for complete article)

One of the key themes of the article is that kids are more likely to workout because they have fun playing video games. I’m certain this is true, but what happens when they get bored with the games? Are gym teachers out of ideas to make P.E. fun? Is this generation carrying such a large sense of entitlement that schools have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on video games to make P.E. fun or they won’t do it? There are so many problems and costs associated with chasing innovation. Post your comments.
