    Abstract

    This paper examines the issues of health and physical education among Indigenous young children in remote communities in Australia and the need for the implementation of technology-assisted physical activity. It was found that although these children were assumed to be very fit, they have higher rates of diseases than non- Indigenous young children, such as Type 2 diabetes. Technology assisted physical activity (Exergame) has been examined in relation to the Indigenous young children?s health and physical education in remote communities. It was also found that there is a need to implement the technology-assisted physical activities into Indigenous young children?s health and physical education classroom. Physical and health educators including general teachers and/or PE specialists in remote communities may find the investigation useful in promoting health and physical education through the use of technology-assisted physical activities among Indigenous children in remote communities.
