Students explore using video and articles before creating their own workout plan. After using their plan for a week, they return to reflect and "tweak" their plan. Students can work in partners or individually to create their workout plan.
In this book, the teacher will receive tips for using technology with students to motivate them towards an active lifestyle. The tips are designed to give the teacher ideas on how to use the information that heart rate monitors and activity monitors provide for students of any age.
This resource is part of the Frontline collection, describing the evolution of digital media from an industry that sought out teens to one in which teens seek out content to “like.” As school-aged children spend more time in digital spaces, companies are able to use information that they gather from their activities. This is different from how it once was. In 2001, corporations chased kids down and tried to sell cool teen culture back to them. Today, teens tell the world what they think is cool using the social currency of their generation: likes, follows, friends, and retweets. When kids like something online, it becomes part of the identity that they broadcast to the world.
