Exergames, or interactive video games that involve physical activity, can be effectively tied into academics to promote a more holistic approach to learning.
The Boys & Girls Club of Elkhart recently added to their Exergame collection with the tapWall. It is a great solution for activating your upper body and relieving tension in your neck and shoulders. Improve your memory, sharpen your reaction time and increase your visual tracking with tapWall.
Here are several ways in which exergames can be integrated into educational settings:
- Short breaks with exergames can help students refresh their minds and bodies during academic classes.
- These breaks can enhance focus and attention, leading to improved academic performance.
- Exergames can be designed to incorporate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts.
- For example, games can simulate physics principles, biomechanics, or mathematical challenges, making learning more interactive and practical.
Educational Content Integration:
- Exergames can be customized to include educational content, such as quizzes, puzzles, or language exercises.
- This integration allows students to learn while being physically active, creating a more dynamic and engaging learning experience.
