Job Godino

Dr. Godino is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health at UCSD. He received his PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Cambridge. His research was conducted within the MRC Epidemiology Unit and focused on the effects of brief personalized information on objectively measured physical activity. He then completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics of Aging Training Program at the Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health. His research was conducted within the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology, and Clinical Research and focused on age-related decline in physical function and its associated disease burden.

Dr. Godino is currently a core faculty member of the Center for Wireless and Population Health Systems and serves as the Director of the Exercise and Physical Activity Resource Center, both of which are based in the California Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technology’s Qualcomm Institute.

The majority of Dr. Godino’s research focuses on the development, conduct, and evaluation of complex interventions that utilize mobile and wearable technology (e.g., smart phones, accelerometers, and heart rate monitors) to promote healthy changes in physical activity, sedentary behavior, diet, and sleep for the primary and secondary prevention of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. He is also actively engaged in the development and evaluation of on- and off-body sensors that measure various components of human physiology and behavior.

Technologies in Physical Education

Jeroen Koekoek

Dr. Jeroen Koekoek is Senior Lecturer Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy for PE Teacher Education at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands. He gives courses in the physical education and sport pedagogy master’s program and teaches games in the bachelor. He received his PhD from Utrecht University.

His research interests are in the areas of game-based approaches and teacher education related to game pedagogy. Jeroen is chair-elect of the executive board Teaching Games for Understanding special interest group (TGfU-SIG) related to AIESEP. He is involved in several research projects regarding digital technology pedagogy. He worked on the Smart Sports Exercises project that aims to improve volleyball practices through the use of interaction technology. Jeroen contributed to several books and papers on physical education and sport with a focus on teaching and learning. Jeroen is co-editor of Routledge’s book published in 2018 about international perspectives on digital technology in physical education.

This year he will publish as co-author Routledge’s book ‘Game based pedagogy in physical education and sports: designing rich learning environments’. In this book a particular game-based pedagogy is merged with digital observation tools.

Alberto Ruiz Ariza

International Doctorate in Educational Innovation and Teacher Training.

He is currently a lecturer at the University of Jaén and an active researcher in the AFAES Group ( He has carried out research stays in several countries, highlighting the Playful Learning Center of the Faculty of Education in Helsinki (Finland).

He has published articles related to Education, Physical Education and New Technologies, highlighting some in JCR and SJR Q1, in the area of Education. He has participated as a researcher in 4 funded Teaching Innovation Projects and 2 as PI, most of them with topics related to New Technologies (podometry to encourage step challenges, use of Goya-Move, etc), as well as in other 4 R&D projects. One of the R&D projects consisted in develop an app for smartphones: "IntEFsity", with the aim of encouraging the practice of daily physical activity of schoolchildren through the use of smart bracelets.
