Is it right that schools are introducing video games to PE

i recently gained knowledge of a elementary school using video games from the wii the x box 360 and soon to be the ps3. i feel that this is unacceptable on allot of levels but perhaps im just being silly

I think it is not right for schools to introduce video games to PE. PE stand for Physical Exercise and as the name suggest, the students are suppose to engage in exercise to refresh their minds. Video games will not in any way help students to refresh their minds and they may end up lagging behind in class.

I thought PE stood for "Physical Education", but it may differ from school to school.

The Wii and the PS3 Move has games that make you move and get great exercise. Nothing wrong with fighting fire with fire. Everybody's answers on this seemed to lack that knowledge. Go ahead, Google them. Buy one; anyone of them are pretty awesome.

this is true and that's why i thought that perhaps i was just getting carried away how ever video games are still video games they don't compare to actual exercise. theyd get more of that during recess if anything

I'll definitely agree with you on that! Recess is fun. But these kids of today are quickly losing the art of play. But if they can still keep moving, I'm ok with that. My 6 year old nephew loves to play games, physical and video games. And I'm going to make sure that he keeps moving.
