Abstract:

Contrary to common belief, several studies have found no relationship between video gaming and obesity or physical inactivity. In fact, video gaming is an untapped resource for enhancing young people's motivation and ability to participate in sports and other movement-based activities. Many popular video games offer sophisticated and engaging simulations of popular sports--such as basketball, soccer, tennis, and football. These simulated experiences may enhance students' motivation, confidence, understanding, and performance in athletic activities if incorporated into the physical education setting.
