AUTHOR(S): Mukesh Kumar Upadhyay, Dr. Neeru Nathani, Rahul Trivedi and Himanshu Kumar Tiwari
As the use of ICT in all curriculum subjects including physical education becomes even more pervasive, it is important for physical education teachers to be reflective and thinking users of the technology. That is, teachers must be mindful that lCT may simply provide a positive means to a negative end. It is conceivable that with the use of lCT, students may have greater access and control over information and know more about sports, health and exercise. It is, however, equally conceivable that the proliferation of such technology may continue to encourage even -‘ more pronounced levels of inactivity among young people. This may inadvertently devalue physical activity and the place of physical education in the school. Research data on the impact of. lCT use in physical education are warranted to help answer some of the pertinent questions raised by professionals who are interested in the welfare and good health of our young people. The future health of this nation may well depend on it. The question as to whether the lCT-physical education nexus is a marriage of convenience, or partners for life, is a question that remains unanswered.
