Abstract: We live in a world that is becoming increasingly interconnected via information and communication technologies (ICTs). The benefits of ICT are significant but there are those that experience these devices differently. The digital divide is an evolving concept which includes a myriad of dimensions and repercussions. Older adults specifically are the most digitally divided demographic group. The present study seeks to explore how older adults perceive the actual physical use of ICT, particularly across generations and contexts, in order to gain deeper insights into their unique experiences. Data for the present study come from a series of focus groups conducted in the Midwest. The results indicate that seniors acknowledge that ICT helps them connect with distant social ties, but that it is actually disconnecting with near social ties. Therefore, in building off of these findings and the digital divide literature, we label this particular phenomenon the “physical-digital divide.” A “social access gap” exists when a particular group feels ostracized or offended when those around them engage with ICT while they themselves are not. In conclusion, younger generations are often referred to as “digital natives” and older generations as “digital immigrants.” We believe that a more apt label for older adults may be “physical natives” as their preferred method of communication involves physical face-to-face interactions and traditional codes of etiquette. Suggestions are made for reducing the divide by increasing intergenerational awareness and understanding regarding ICT usage etiquette.

Abstract: Despite the documented benefits of physical activity for children, few participate in enough activity at the proper intensity levels to receive the benefits. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2008) recommends that children participate in sixty minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity daily. In order to reach this recommendation, many states are enacting legislation to require an increase in moderate to vigorous activity time in physical education classes. Oklahoma’s State Bill 1876, which went into effect on November 1, 2010, requires that at least fifty percent of physical education activities be performed at a moderate or vigorous intensity levels. While the intent of State Bill1876 is noble, tools that exist to measure moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) are either extremely costly, time prohibitive, or both. Methods or resources to quickly, effectively, and affordably collect quantifiable data measuring MVPA levels among students are not outlined by the Bill or provided by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. The primary goals of this proposed project are to define affordable measures that can be used to directly measure and accurately quantify time spent in moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) among school age children during physical education classes; and to make these measures readily available to Oklahoma Public School Physical Educators.
