Exergaming: Conlee elementary students, staff get active with Wii

An article was recently published in the USA Today that featured the exergaming work that Celsa Madrid is doing at Conlee Elementary in Las Cruces, New Mexico. The local Las Cruces Sun News followed up with an article summarizing her work as well. Madrid first learned about exergaming possibilities though participation in an “Adult Think Tank” program at New Mexico State University’s Learning Games Lab, and later became directly involved in an exergaming project with NMSU. To incorporate exergames into the school Conlee Elementary staff conduct a “Just Dance” morning exercise program that is a segment on Conlee Colt TV’s, which is broadcast every morning. Madrid also conducts an exergaming class every Wednesday morning where students workout with not only a Nintendo Wii, but a Playstation 2, a Xavix and will soon be using an Xbox 360 Kinect.
