The Walk - Fitness Tracker and Game

Get The Walk - Fitness Tracker and Game on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
John Pearce's insight:

Though I haven't tried it, the premise behind this app, gamifying your fitness program is rather appealing. The documentation suggests that the story/game is UK based which may make it a little trickier to understand some of the nuances of the scenarios. It should also be noted that the app has a special 20% off launch sale price.

"In the past year I have received numerous emails asking the best and easiest way to go about designing ‘apps’ for classes etc. The question varies depending on what type of functionality they desire, however for anyone looking to build an app that links together content from multiple web sources such as RSS Feeds, YouTube videos, twitter accounts etc then I am recommending two tools to get this done in a matter of minutes."

ICT For Educators: Integrating technology in PE

ICT For Educators: Integrating technology in PE | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

" I recently had the opportunity to join our PE team at a PD hosted by Jarrod Robinson http://thepegeek.com/about/ ; - also known as the PE Geek http://thepegeek.com/ ; - on integrating technology into PE. Jarrod introduced us to a number of great tools and resources to help PE teachers make better use of technology in their lessons. As he pointed out, professional coaches have long been using cutting edge technology to train athletes and mobile devices now make it possible for anyone to access these kinds of tools at a fraction of the cost and with much greater ease. Our PE teachers enjoyed the practical, hands-on focus of the PD and have already started implementing what they have learned into their classes."

App Store - Classroom Games

Whether you’re a substitute or a regular classroom teacher, games are a great way to fill extra time at the end of a lesson. Classroom teachers around the world play games with their kids to entertain, educate and to reward. 

We have assembled this collection of some of the enduring games that have been used by teachers for decades. These games don’t require much in the way of special materials, and classrooms can be easily arranged to accommodate the games in this app. While some of the games are active, most don’t risk injury in the classroom, leaving running and jumping for the gym or the playground.

AFIT is a tool to help you learn about nutrition and physical activity as you track your progress each day. The main components are based on a motivational strategy for engagement in a healthy lifestyle.

Anyone can use AFIT to monitor health information as an AFITstudent. You get points and stars as you enter what you eat and what activities you accomplish, starting fresh each day. You get an overview of your progress with the nutrition and activity logs, and you can jump back to review and edit your information for any day in full detail.

If you are a student in a participating educational study, you can log in to submit your information to your teacher. AFITteachers can help students reach full potential by reviewing the daily records.
