Challenge 3: Physical activity is an integral part of learning

Educators understand the importance of the integration of physical activity in the learning experience. However, that activity was usually restricted to the classroom, playground, and gym. Physical activity can also be effective in increasing student achievement through traditional “academic” subjects.
We feel that the Civil War Augmented Reality Project promotes physical activity through the encouragement of movement from place to place, and also in interactive scenarios where the users race to meet a time limit or compete with other users.
Health experts also have encouraged such practices, and the outdoor spaces of the United States could be both gym, library, and museum. As we like to say, “Get off of the wire and into the world.”
