Abstract

Abstract: Heart disease continues to be listed among the leading causes of premature morbidity (CDC, 2004). In fact in 2001, 29% of all deaths with 16.8% in those less than 65 were caused by heart disease. Sadly, many of these heart disease related deaths could have been prevented (CDC, 2004). Since appropriate choices and physical activity involvement should begin in youth (Sallis & McKenzie, 1991), middle school students were selected as participants in this healthy heart, integrated curriculum. Emphasizing the PT3 objectives, this project sought to integrate technologies into a Healthy Heart curriculum to enhance knowledge, choices and involvement in healthy lifestyles. Specifically, this paper discusses the technological applications, curricular components and the impact of the project.
