The Effects of Exergaming on Physical Activity in a Third-Grade Physical Education Class
Shayne, Rachel K.; Fogel, Victoria A.; Miltenberger, Raymond G.; Koehler, Shannon
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v45 n1 p211-215 Spr 2012
We compared the effects of exergaming and traditional physical education on physical activity among 4 active children who were not overweight and who had experience with the exergaming activities prior to the study. Results showed that exergaming produced substantially higher percentages of physical activity and opportunity to engage in physical activity. In addition, an evaluation of the exergaming equipment showed that exergaming stations were associated with differential levels of physical activity across participants. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
