Video gaming for exergamers: What you need to know

Featured guest: Ray BoldenGreetings!What do you know about the video gaming world? Do you wonder what game your child is playing? Do you feel clueless about the video gaming world? You're not alone. Many of us judged video gaming as bad without ever really knowing why. Ray has been a gamer for a number of years. We met when I was running an summer camp circa 2008. In my ignorance and arrogance, I was trying to open up more songs. My friend brought her son over, (Ray) and he opened up DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party for the Wii for mii! He did it quickly, effortlessly and with amazing rhythm and grace. We could only hope to be as good some day.DanceDanceRevolution is the gold standard of exergames. It also happens to be a game changer for the fitness industry, if we have anything to do with it. You heard it here first...Tune in. Hopefully you will learn something. Questions? Contact Wii Fitness Examiner on Facebook!Respect to all gamers!Penda, Goddess of Virtual Fitness Wii FAB (VFF)Penda and daughters DDR

Review: Teach Math with the Wii

Greetings all!Hope you have gotten your Wii on today. I sure have. I wanted to share a review I wrote on a book I received: Teach Math with the Wii. There is so little educational Wii literature that this book is a welcome addition.The authors love technology and they wish to engage students in the math classroom at the highest level. How to get a greater buy-in? Why, bring the Wii into the classroom, of course.Imagine the students response when they see a Wii in the classroom!What about you? Do you play the Wii seriously and professionally? Please, we'd love to share your story. Contact Raina at wiifitnessexaminer@gmail.com.
