Physical exercise and computer game

The BBC story 'US pupils to dance themselves fit' reports on an initiative in West Virginia, USA. Following a succesful pilot project, the state is extending the use in middle schools of a computer game and electronic dance-mat. The teenagers move their bodies to match dance steps shown on screen, taking exercise and getting healthier. It's a neat way to address childhood obesity.

Given the obesity figures for Scottish children, would any of our Scottish schools like to try this?

Nick - you will recall from the Challenge Fund bids that Lochgilphead HS was trying to do this.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. But just
imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche.
Wonderful blog!

Hi! I realize this is kind of off-topic however
I needed to ask. Does running a well-established blog
like yours take a lot of work? I'm brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal everyday. I'd
like to start a blog so I will be able to
share my experience and feelings online. Please let
me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

I seldom drop remarks, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Physical exercise and computer game".

And I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Is it simply me or does it look as if like some of these comments come across like they are
coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are
writing on other places, I would like to keep up
with everything new you have to post. Could you list of all of all your
social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
