Activity Trackers For Students With Special Needs

My students need fitness trackers with sedentary remind, water drink remind, calorie burnt count and step count. The one selected is easy to use and also has big sensitive touch screens for students with disabilities.

My Students

Students in our class have special needs. They are 18-21 years old (students with special needs can attend school until age 21). They are a hand selected group of students from across our district. They have been selected because they are eager to learn vocational and life skills which may afford them the ability to be independent in the future. We work on shopping skills, household tasks, personal hygiene, interpersonal interactions, time management, emergency response situations, navigation (how to ride the city bus) and employment skills. Students learn through hands-on experiences in the community and daily living instruction in a natural setting. Students get excited about classroom activities.

They are excited to be healthy productive citizens.

They want our community to focus on their abilities not disabilities.

My Project

This spring, I got an activity tracker for my birthday. My students sat with their eyes wide open as each student patiently waited for a chance to try on the tracker. They loved the idea of being able to see the number of steps they’ve taken at any given point in the day. From there their grant idea took shape. They want each student in the class to have an activity tracker in hopes of motivating them to “stay active, live better, and meet their goals.”

My students love that they can walk, dance, jog, sprint, play basketball or hop with the activity tracker.

They can wear them inside, on a trail, in a shopping mall, or as they are running to catch the school bus!

There is no question that the activity trackers encourage an active lifestyle. Students can log into their online account and see the badges that they’ve earned over the lifetime of having the device. When they climb their first 10 flights of stairs in a single day, students are greeted with an email that congratulates them and they get a digital badge to commemorate the achievement. The more flights you climb, the more badges you earn. The same is true when you reach your first 5000 steps day. These badges are extrinsic rewards, but they serve to connect with students personal goals and aspirations.

Lastly, the activity that my students love most is basketball. They feel having a basketball hoop outside the classroom will further encourage them to get out and be active.
