My Students

My students enjoy taking physical education. For many students, they are able to find success in my class and they look forward to having P.E. during the school day. The benefits of physical education are endless and my students enjoy engaging in physical activity so they can see the benefits of exercise when they are in their core classes.

Students are able to see their fitness levels increase throughout the school year which improves self-esteem.

Students are motivated by technology!

My Project

In physical education, students wear heart rate monitors on a daily basis. This technology is essential for students to understand different heart rate zones and the benefits of exercising in multiple heart rate zones. With these heart rate monitors, students' heart rates are able to be projected on the wall (anonymously) so students are able to track their heart rate during the entire class! This creates motivation for students.

Currently, our school has a cheap projector in which a projector cart has to be in the middle of the gym for heart rates to be displayed.

This has been a safety concern because students are at high risk of running into the projector cart during activities. With a high-end projector, the projector would be able to be against the wall and project (heart rates) across to the other side of the gym. This would excite students and would help promote safety in my gym. This projector could also be used during school-wide events and assemblies.
