Health and physical recreation in online, VR and AR worlds is an emerging and highly influential field. High school students may already be familiar with games like Pokémon Go, apps like Zwift and wearables like Fitbit.
This program asks students to investigate intersections between new technology and health and recreation – exploring the personal and social implications of these integrations.
We introduce sports science data analysis and explore the possibilities that are presented now that coaching can be conducted from the other side of the world or even by AI to team members that are just as geographically diverse.
Students are invited to collect, analyse, interpret and present fitness data from their peers and are able to access data provided by well-known sports people and teams. The groups are guided through the use of 2D, 3D, AR and VR tools for visualising data in realtime.
