Exergames Unlocked: Case Studies of Unique & Successful Community Based Use of Exergames (Presentation in Keynote)

At the Games for Health Conference (2010), we reviewed the Exergames Unlocked initiative, including work on the website, exergamesunlocked.com. We shared content from the site, as well as lessons learned on succesful ways to use exergames with specific audiences. Barbara Chamberlin, Ph.D., Rachel Gallagher, Michelle Garza, Pamela Martinez

  • We were funded by USDA 3 years ago to find answer the broad question, how can exergames make an impact? We chose to address low-cost, commercially accessible games, and to tackle it head on with some research about impacts, qualitative inquiry with users of exergames, and then to create a site that helps the everyday, average, normal person: teachers, parents, activity directors -- use exergames in appropriate ways.
  • So... quickly, let’s highlight the research... we don’t have to talk about that because our research partners are.

  • So... how do we find out what people need to know? We give them equipment, and very little initial guidance... then we toss them into the pool and watch them try to swim. And Michelle Garza is the lifeguard for that. She talks with our recipients regularly... they blog, she blogs, they talk on the phone, and she finds out what is working, what isn’t and what else we need to create. That drives content for the site, and makes her an expert on exergames implementation. So... you can go to the site and learn more, but here are some of what she has learned that makes a difference.
