Abstract

Technology can be seen everywhere in sports. From the shoes that students wear to the sports equipment used for physical activity. Sports organizations nowadays spend thousands in promoting latest technologies to enhance sports performance. Technology is changing the way that athletes train: they now have the chance to improve their technique and their skills by using mobile applications and gadgets that help them boost their fitness levels and take one's workout to the next level. This chapter describes ways that students in the ACS Athens i2Flex fitness class explore physical activity by using the power of new and emerging technologies, and mobile learning, while at the same time eliminating concerns about giving up activity time for some kind of online alternative.
