What will be done with my students

Students will learn to regularly use heart rate monitors to gauge their activity levels. Students will be encouraged and engaged while monitoring their own target heart rate and effort. Students will see their code/name projected on the wall so they can push themselves when needed and learn the value of trying their best and staying active longer. Students will be engaged in their own fitness and participation levels and know when they need to push themselves harder. Results can also be emailed and printed for parent communication/engagement as well. 

 

Benefits to my students

Our scholars will learn about fitness technology and how to monitor and improve their own fitness levels. They can set daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. The technology will help engage our students with fitness and encourage higher fitness intensity levels. It will also show the teacher, students, and parents the improvements and effort put forth. Parents will be able to see results through email and help students stay focused on doing their best. We intend on seeing an increased interest, buy-in and fitness levels from the use of this technology to be shown with participation levels getting gradually better and improvements in fitnessgram assessments; especially the 20 meter pacer test. We expect to see more motivation to improve and achieve goals.
