Abstract

The new reality characterizing the adolescents in the current society requires that a renovation of ideas in their posings is produced in the educational environment, which achieves to build links of union between their main objectives and the new needs and students’ values.  At the same time, another problem of great social repercussion should be added, which demands meaningful performances from the area of P.E., as it is the one related to health. Consequently, a different approach is presented next when dealing with the contents of the health block, starting from a very attractive resource among the adolescents: Role-playing Games, together with the support of New Technologies.

Keywords: Adolescents, health, physical education, Role-playing Games.
