Australian Researcher Uses RFID to Track Preschoolers' Activity Levels

Karen Tonge, a researcher with the University of Wollongong's Early Start Research Institute (ESRI), is using an RFID-based solution to track the movements and proximity of students and educators in preschool playgrounds, thereby providing insight regarding how much teacher engagement influences the level of activity in children. The study will aim to provide educators and other interested parties with information regarding the extent to which teachers can influence how active children are during their early education years. The premise is that the more physically active a child is, the better that individual's health and well-being will become.
