The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of technology that can enhance learning in physical education and exercise science instructional programs at the K-12 level and in colleges and universities. Although technology is widely used in physical education programs, it is generally limited to software and equipment that assesses students' fitness or to the Internet as a means to obtain and share information. For example, Physical Best provides software to help track students' progress and generate reports, and commonly used equipment includes heart rate monitors and pedometers. While this deserves applause, many additional forms of technology are available, although usually only at the college level.
