Physical education: a mobile application validates and stimulates physical activity outside the classroom
Can free mobile applications such as Runkeeper and Runtastic help ensure that students in the 103 Physical Education class are engaging in the physical activity they are supposed to outside of class? This is what I believe after testing it with my students and studying the topic for my master's essay [in French]. By also asking my students to send me pictures of themselves while they do their physical activity, I get authentic results and, most importantly, I make the course more motivating for the students.
