Learning through drawing, role-plays and small group work allows people to become actively involved in the process, without worrying about their official status or their ability to communicate formally. - This document aims at cooperating with Steve Nash Sports Centre (SNSC) in finding if there is a more extensive interactive system that could be offered at club locations where it would be possible to sync up and complement the use of a Wii Fit system at a member s home. 2.
