XBOX KINECT for PE...isn't that a video game?

With Zumba growing fast as one of the top workouts it is now just not a class that you have to leave your house for. You can now get a game that is both on the PS3 Move and the Xbox Kinect. With this there is no stopping to learn any new steps your just go in and start. So this is a great way to get the kids moving. Also the kids will enjoy this I feel because they won’t be worried about others watching them dance because the other kids will be watching the screen trying to follow the dance moves. Also with this students will want to lead their classmates to get a chance at actually playing the Xbox Kinect. I also feel like with this type of learning the students would be willing to also do this during a study hall or even have it going on before the first bell rings for classes. This will be geared more towards the kinesthetic learners that are more of the hands on learners. They will really like this because they are just doing the activity. The other type of students that will do well in this kind of teaching would be the visual learners. They will be able to see the moves that they will be performing so they can get them down easier. The dances are in sequences so the students will see the pattern over and over to learn the dance.
