I think daily burn is a great way for people trying to get on track with their healthy lifestyles to watch their progress and become more fit. The only downfall to this website is that it’s very confusing. I’m usually very good with technology and programs, but I still feel lost after using this for a week. I believe that this site can be most beneficial to someone who is looking to do the “pro” version because you can get very detailed with what you eat, how much you work out, etc. A few months ago I signed up with a website called mycaloriecounter.com, which is part of everydayhealth.com. My healthy eating habits started to decrease and I needed something where I could track the food I ate as well as the calories I was putting out easily and efficiently. I find the website I used to be a lot easier because there’s not as many options to choose from.
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?
This website would be a great thing to use at the high school level to allow students to track their workouts and progress in a way that’s fun for them. This is also great for the nutrition aspect of the site because many kids aren’t eating what they should be to grow and fulfill their nutritional requirements. I think that if students had to log what they ate, it would be an eye-opener to the amount of calories they’re consuming and what they need more of in their diets. This site will be able to accomplish our Recommended Regent’s Level for LS #1B because it allows students to plan their own fitness work out and to keep track of the goals that they have in mind. In order to modify this for a group’s goal, it would be good to have a “class goal” set up for the year because it’s something that would unite the students together. Through out the year you could set up meetings with students to assess their progress and help them reach their goals.
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 be tried out online.
I think that having the students take screen shots of their progress would be great proof to report data. By printing out a screen shot of their nutrition, exercise and goals they are showing that they are performing and working towards their goals.
