Strava for Kids - Adapted for students in PE Class
Create an app for students to use to record their physical activity outside of PE class. Perhaps the app can allow students to join their class or school in tracking their progress to a goal, either individually or as a group. Perhaps it can include physical activity such as cycling, walking, and running but also strength activities such as push-ups or sit-ups (find a way to record that on phone). Once students are able to record their progress, then maybe teachers or classmates can give them 'kudos' or some type of positive feedback (similar to a high five in class). I really like the positive feedback involved already, such as 'kudos' and 'medals.'
One current challenge is that a program or app needs to be created for kids to use that it internet safe and promote 'digital citizenship' so that principals, parents and other teachers approve it. There are a lot of possibilities in a Strava for Kids app that allows them to record fitness and activity as well as give/receive positive reinforcement from classmates. Is there anything created like this on Strava right now?
