Interesting read from a teacher who was given a Fitbit as a gift and how she analogized various axioms for classroom understanding.
Here is a simple, five-step process to incorporate Fitbits into your classroom:
- Define what problem you want to solve. (e.g. I need more steps per day.)
- Gather baseline data related to your goal. (e.g. number of steps per day, across an entire week)
- Based on the baseline data, create a reasonable goal. (e.g. In one month, my average steps per day will increase by at least 25%.)
- Track and record your data, through the use of tables, graphs, etc.
- Present and reflect.
What role will wearables have in our classrooms?
