    I find it incredibly humorous that children need to be told that they should get 60 minutes of exercise/day. I remember being young when video games were “new” and still novel. But they were still something to do after dark or on rainy days. Where does all of their time go. I work 2 jobs and go to school, all I want is to get outside and burn off some steam.
    I feel that in order for this to work, it is going to have to become incredibly localized. There needs to be geographically specific pages that list opportunities/ groups for people to meet up with and ultimately participate in. With all the web communities reaching out, it is time they reach back to their locals.

    Teaching has to adjust to match how our students best learn. I love the airplane analogy. Thanks for allowing access to the PPT. I plan on sharing this with my colleagues.
