I really like using Daily Burn, I feel that it is very effective and a good tool for people to use in order to keep track of their nutrition, fitness, and daily activities. I use a similar program on my phone which is directed more closely to weight lifting. I like Daily Burn better, in that it covers all areas of physical fitness rather than one single area. I would most defiantly consider remaining part of the rockstar group and continue with using this program. I would like to get a form of this as an application for my Droid phone.

3. What electronic tool could you see as being useful for capturing data and reporting for the Recommended Regent’s Level for LS #1A? Describe how this tool might work in a High School Setting. If you plan to use Excel, or Google Forms, be sure to include a sample that can tried out online.
The electronic tools of Excel, Google Forms, or PowerPoint could be used for capturing data and reporting for the Recommended Regent’s Level for LS #1A. In a High School setting students could have an assignment given to them at the beginning of the year to record and asses their goals and nutrition for the entire year. This is a good way to open students’ eyes to what they are taking into their body as well as how much they are burning. The Picasa 3 program can be used to take screenshots of good examples of nutrition or when each student reaches their goal, these screenshots can then be another form of assessment of improvement. It can also be a good motivational factor.
