A Creative Way to Utilize Social Media to Enhance Fitness and Health Knowledge
Polsgrove, Myles Jay; Frimming, Renee Elizabeth
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v26 n2 p3-7 2013
The social media format can be used to create a physical education community of experienced and new student members. In this setting, opportunities for novel and meaningful student interactions can be made possible. Through access to the insights of experienced members, new or incoming members can more quickly become knowledgeable members. Ideally, experienced members would get an enriched ability to apply and organize learned knowledge. Such insights could be translated to various settings where senior members are able to more easily interact with others about fitness and health. New members may be more likely to overcome potential participation barriers by gaining a deeper knowledge through experience and practice. In this format, instructors, coaches, and teachers could offer a more comprehensive educational format to all students.
