I remember a saying from my youth that “Fighting for peace is like [expletive deleted] for virginity”. In a similar way comes an interesting post from Jim about a novel approach towards getting kids active that has been taken by the NZ sport and recreation commission.
MissionOn is a social networking site aimed at rewarding kids for getting out and getting active. On the site users earn points which can be spent on customising their personalised web pages. I’m trying my hardest to not be sceptical but creating an engrossing and entertaining website in order to get kids away from their computers and outside?
