  • Introduced by Richard , straight after Lisa's competition practical demo -  This presentation will give you the background into exergaming tournaments, just one way to engage children in physical activity through technology. Exergaming is commonly recognised in Dance Mats, Sony Eyetoy, Wii Sports, Gamercize and also a variety of racing game bikes.  Those are the products, but what of the concept in competitions? Where did it come from, what can it do and why should you be using it?
  • A few words about Richard , and hand over to Emily
  • A few words about Emily
  • Emily on change
  • Emily introduces competition and tournaments, with the familiar setting of sport 
  • Emily's section Elite Sports = TV, top class, am or pro... beyond reailty for the masses Commonality over sports is TOURNAMENTS! Wide appeal Talk about "moving up leagues" (dont worry about the formatting, I'll pull this down to powerpoint and get that bit done and also get each bullet point to come in on click)
  • In a good cop / bad cop kinda way, Richard shows gaming tourneys Tournaments are not just about sports and athletes. What's the laziest form of professional competition? Video Gaming! Yes, it is a professional sport.
  • Richard's section Last point (after eliciting groans of "typical")... London 2012 Olympics are sponsored by who? Cocacola and MacDonalds!!
  • Richard's section Tournaments attract the same kind of sponsors, what else do tournaments have in common?
  • Richard's brings out some of the comparisions, which should hopeful define tournaments in a neutral context!
  • Richard's section Talk about winning in a school environment, its not about winners more about making sure there are no losers. Reference research of success being 70%,  i.e. you can have a tournament that 70% win, so how can we make it appropriate? Let's pick that point up later and look at the benefits of tournaments.
  • Emily takes the tournament basics and focuses on the "good" aspects
  • Emily 's section Take emphasis of winning. Example a 100m race, there's one winner, but everyone has a personal best to improve. Contribution to a team performance provides a social experience that's used in every aspect of day-to-day living The drive to team and personal goals used to enforce good behavior patterns in regular physical training 
  • Richard takes the good bits and the touney bits in context with exergaming. This section will be ilustrated by the examples to follow Its hard to find a good picture representing healthy fun, but I think this is pretty close, and healthy fun is where we start with exergaming,  before we expand into tournaments
  • RIchard's section   more prevalent with exergaming, but not exclusively and not all exergames get the same degree of benefit On injury, have some fun at Wii's expense but use this to stress the point that we need  appropriate implementation just like regular PE! On physical effort I'll reference cricket, standing in the outfield, maybe ts the same as baseball, I'll need a little help from my American friend here!
  • Richard's implementation on online tournaments, with emphasis on easy access and habit forming.  The example here is a USA vs UK online Xbox Soccer Touney that was held between a school here in Calif. Teams of 5 players played individual games against their counterparts from the other side of the pond without  leaving their school.
  • RIchard's Section 95% - "you don't have to teach them anything about video games"   cost effective way to keep competitive sport in school In case you're wondering, the UK beat USA 4 to 1 in the Xbox tournament, so you better start practicing  
  • Emily introduces the socialisation and all that other good iDANCE stuff
  • Emily 's section
  • Kinda have to have this in as if we've lost anyone, it'll bring them back, so Emily goes into the congnative and health benefits
  • Emily's section
  • Emily talks about next steps for delegates, referencing the demo Lisa just did, resources like TEN, GZ + iDANCE school handbooks and all that good stuff Being diligent and intelligent people, we now have a shortlist of exergames that have the ability to deliver exercise to our target population in a fun and sustainable way, but how can we employ this new technology?
  • Emily's section Formats in include ladders / leagues and knock out tournaments (Em, read my section in the GZ handbook!) which can be chosen based on how much time you have, how many students you have and what the objective of the tournament is. Students vs Stations. If you have one Wii Fit and a class of 45, it's a better idea to run a ladder type tournament over a number of weeks than a one lesson tournament. iDANCE multiplayer, with 16 or 32 stations however would be a much better choice for a one class competition. 
  • Richard closes the presentation with how to connect with TEN and encourage further discussion online Slides total = 24 Richard = 12 Emily = 12
