Daily Burn

         What do your impressions of using Daily Burn?  Do you currently use another form of online exercise and nutrition tracker? If so what is it and which features do you like better?  If not, why not and will you consider staying apart of our Rockstar Group? Be sure to include your screen shots (at least 3) that you took and cropped.

             I found this site to be very impressive. I never been on this site like but I know that this is something that i will surely use in the future in my quest to get be healthy. As with any site it take some getting to know but i will use the work out  plan section to my benefit!

iv.         How would you use this website to accomplish our Recommended Regent’s Level for LS #1B?  What modifications would you use to establish a group or individual’s goals?
            Learning Standard 1B says that students will design personal fitness programs to improve cardio respiratory endurance, flexibility, muscular strength, endurance, and body composition. Theres an element on the site that allows students to see different types of fitness programs they can develop for themselves. I would allow student to use this site as a tool to create their own or use the ones available on the site and manipulate the workouts to make it there own. Using this site I feel will give them the opportunity to seek out learning standard 3 and find places out side the school building to workout and keep up with the fitness programs created.

v.      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.
 Electronic tools that I would find useful to comply to standard 1A in my classroom  would be use of heart rate monitors , excel worksheets and graphs. This would work in a high school setting because it allows students to track their progress throughout the semester. You can also use the information to create friendly competition or even set goals in the class if results are posted with anonymously. This way students can compete with 'student 7' and want his/her results to be better that hers.
