Uplift Education is the largest public charter school network in North Texas. Established in 1996 with one school in Irving, they have now grown to a network serving over 17,500 scholars in pre-k through 12th grade on 19 campuses across the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Their schools have received national recognition and 100% of their graduates have been accepted to college.
Their goal is to completely close the achievement gap between students, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background, while ensuring that 100% of our students graduate and enroll in college.
Recently Uplift Education contacted Exergame Fitness to learn how interactive fitness and gaming could improve social skills, academic scores, and cognitive ability. The CDC states, physical activity can have an impact on cognitive skills and attitudes and academic behavior, all of which are important components of improved academic performance. These include enhanced concentration and attention as well as improved classroom behavior.
With fitness gaming becoming a larger trend in the education space, Exergame recommended the tWall 32. The tWall is the perfect combination of fun, and fitness; while challenging the students to use their minds within a variety of game choices.
