ExerGame Workshop at AAHPERD 2012 Rocked

We had a great morning with all the presenters and attendees discovering the many faces of exergaming and ways to implement them into any curriculum to accomplish your intended learning outcomes (specific learning outcomes/ objectives) which should be the main focus of any lesson/unit plan.

From no or little technology or to full blown exergaming systems, our star-studded cast of presenters helped attendees to feel the difference when some form of technology is used appropriately.

A special thank you to the teacher-candidates and student-teachers from SUNY Cortland who came a day earlier than the rest of the gang to help lead games, give suggestions for using technology, and be so supportive of all the presenters. They're already talking about making North Carolina in 2013 even better!

Helping out this morning were student-teachers Ben Paquette & Andy Snide; and teacher-candidates Anthony DiRienzo, Sunnie Biffarella, TJ Toteno, Steve Miner, Pat Kaplan, & Dave Sommer. One of the greatest benefits was interacting with attendees who are teachers and athletic-directors from Missouri, Mass, NY, Guam, Puerto Rico, Washington, Kentucky, Canada, .....basically all over the world. And if you ask some of them, some of them were even discussing JOB OPPORTUNITIES for next fall all over the country. You never know who you're going to meet when you're networking at these conferences...but you'll never experience it until you get yourself to a conference. Hint Hint!
