I thought this was great, and even found myself playing with the Running Map immediately. Thinking of technology many think right to how kids just play video games all day and play on tablets but there are so many technologies out there to help with fitness ( go figure)! Another thing along with your pedometer would be the heart rate monitor which is a very useful tool for anyone.

Mary Beth, Thank you for the resources! It is often hard to find digital technology that can be used in Health and Physical Education. Yes, it is often stressed in Physical Education and Health to use technology in moderation but technology is still a great resource to have. These sites will be very useful in encouraging some students to learn and be more involved in their own health and physical activity. Sometimes we have to connect with the student in whatever means possibly to encourage them or guide them in the right direction.
