GETTING RESULTS... one step at a time!

I think I've earned my bragging rights...

If you've been reading my blog, you already know that I have done A LOT of work this year, in the incorporation of iPod technology into every PE class, at each of the grade levels I teach (5-8).

One of the fitness applications I use on a daily basis is "Footsteps". Initially I only subscribed to the free version of the app, but then quickly realized that I needed the paid version, since the maximum number of steps it will calculate on a daily basis is only 3,000.

Each student has a class goal of 3,000 steps during their 45 minute PE period.  For those of you who don't already know, 10,000 daily steps is the general goal in order to achieve a healthy, active lifestyle.

As you can see in the screenshot above, my students are staying ACTIVE, running FAST, and keeping FIT!  So happy to have the technology to track their progress and distance scores!  It has really enhanced the student learning experience.

So what are you waiting for today?? START STEPPING!! ;)
