Final Part 1c

1. I am not much of a fan of the Daily Burn. First of all, it is a bit confusing. If you are not fully familiar with the health area, then there is a lot of information on the site that may seem useless to you. The site does not seem to be convenient. You need to type in all of your exercises and repetitions, it is really no different than writing it on a spreadsheet. Being able to keep track of your nutrition on this site is not a bad idea, but it will not always be accurate. You have to search for the foods that you consumed, but the preparation of food is always different if it is not from a chain restaurant. So if you are concentrating on weight loss, the tracking on the site may not be truly accurate unless you are fully aware of the calories you are consuming.

2. To accomplish the recommended Regent's level for LS#1B, students can use Daily Burn to keep track of the particular areas of health. Whether it should be nutrition or work-outs, students can log in and organize what they have done throughout the school year. I do not think students would be too thrilled having to log onto the website and track everything that they have done. If everyone had advanced enough phones, there is sure to be an application that does the same tracking as the site. It would just be more convenient and possibly more simple. Step counts and heart rate monitors would be just as useful and would not require anymore tracking that writing down the appearing numbers.

3. Taking screenshots, like the ones seen in this blog, can certainly capture the results from the program. It would give a clear view to the teacher and could be shared without outside people taking a look at them. The privacy can be contained through Google docs in which the student can share a document with the teacher, containing screenshots of the required results.
