This article outlines research looking into the benefits of active video games for children which can increase physical activity. I liked it because it highlights a positive aspect of technology. The media tends to bundle things, such as video games, together with all the negative impacts (often quoting Grand Theft Auto) when clearly jumping around to Just Dance is a healthy and fun; and very different to playing violent games. It also highlights that technology takes place in many different forms – many parents think of children sitting on their own in front of a computer when it can be so much more.
