Fit bit technology would be an excellent addition to Physical Education classrooms, one that would render a more accurate assessment of each individual student’s level of physical activity and fitness. The  Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband would be most ideal.

One of the devices could be purchased to accommodate the number of students in each PE class, and the PE instructor would program the devices for each of his or her students to track and grade their activity.

Optionally, the device could be worn throughout the entire school day, and returned to PE or relevant instructors at the end of the school day. Parents who purchase the bands could opt for their children to additionally wear them at home and/or after school to monitor their children’s activities.

Perhaps, those particular students who wear the bands after school could receive extra credit in their PE classes, and receive other incentives for meeting appropriate activity and fitness goals…
