Empowering Canadians Through Play, Sport and Movement in a Digital World
PHE in Digital Culture Lab
We are a team comprised of researchers, teachers, clinical psychologists, coaches and leaders who advocate for Physical Health Education and Sport in Canada. The goal of this lab is to situate Physical and Health Education in evolving Digital Culture; to develop a place where educators and sport leaders can leverage technology to build a culture of healthy movers, healthy communities and a Healthier Canada.
We aim to promote resilience, wellness, and a healthy lifestyle, using digital technology to facilitate sustainable and meaningful PHE programs. Our lab is home to a group of creative and motivated thinkers who push the boundaries and implement engaging digital lessons that encourage students, teachers and parents to get active.
