Abstract: This study investigated the difference of involvement between traditional and technology assisted physical activities. Seventeen (12 girls and 5 boys) 5-year-olds participated in both traditional running game (15 minutes) and Wii Fit jogging game (15 minutes). Observation was used to study the child’s level of involvement. The study found that technology assisted physical activities involved participants higher than traditional activities in energy, facial expression & posture, persistence and the overall rating. This study also found that the 5-year-olds who like technology were involved more in technology assisted activities than traditional activities. This study concluded that technology-assisted tools have higher involvement level on the 5-year-olds’ physical activities.
