  • My Class Needs fitness trackers and tablets to incorporate technology into their lives

    My Students

    Our school has students from SD43 from grades 9 to 12 in an online based school in Coquitlam B.C. I teach PE to students with varied skill levels. One thing that connects students is the use of technology to explore their interests, problem solve, make learning more efficient and applicable to everyday life. My students are enthusiastic learners, striving to expand their knowledge base and skill set. Technological integration would benefit them by linking tools into their health education.

    How will this project impact them?

    I am emphasizing the integration of technology for my online Physical Education course. My goal is to encourage them to understand and learn about the benefit of tracking heart rate, calories, steps and overall health. A key factor in the success of understanding these concepts is to have tools such as fitness trackers and tablets to analyze their own improvements over time. Some students are familiar with technology such as iPads, iPods, and FitBits but many are unaware of how to integrate the use of such technology into benefiting or improving their overall health and performance. My goal is to encourage students to set short and long term health goals for themselves and to be able to track their goals through a tracking device and also being able to analyze their results through a tablet. Students can also use the tablet to research tools and connect to an online fitness community.
