2013 DuPage County Institute & Exergaming Preconference at Chicago Bulls/Sox Academy
Exergame Education Workshop
The Professional Development Exergame Education Workshop is for physical education professionals, school administrators, superintendents, schools, after school programs, nonprofits, and foundations.
The 25th Annual DuPage County Institute Conference in partnership with Exergame Fitness, will be co-hosting a pre-conference event focusing on Exergaming. Participants will hear from leading experts who research the impacts of Exergaming in physical education, mental health, and academics. Attendees will find this full day pre-conference to be fun, educational, and inspiring as we move forward in creating a physical education experience that engages children, teaches healthy lifestyles, increases academic performance, and battles childhood obesity.
The conference will be set up in two sections. Each section will provide valuable take aways that you will be able to implement within your school and community. You will get caught up to speed on the current issues surrounding childhood obesity, and shown successful models to combat it. Section 1 will be about starting and implementing a successful program. Section 2 will be for those who already have a program and want to learn ways for improvement.
*Attendees of this event will be eligible for Continuing Professional Development Units (CPDUs).
