Maybe you heard, maybe you didn’t, but last year the Smart PE Movement took off on the wings of the Heart Zones System. For those of you just now hearing the term “Smart PE”, get ready because Smart PE is the future of physical education, and the future is now!
3 things you need to join the movement
First and foremost Smart PE requires technology in the classroom. If you are looking to join the movement in 2017 you need to be ready to add technology to your physical education programs. Smart PE, in part, refers to “smart devices” which are wearables that provide some form of feedback on your exercise and effort.
Smart PE also gets its name from the process of improving student knowledge in regards to important biofeedback metrics. As teachers ourselves, we know that ultimately our job is to help prepare our students for real world success. In physical education that means helping kids understand how to take advantage of our technology driven fitness culture through increasing fitness literacy. By providing real-time feedback in physical education, students are able to learn what the data means and ultimately how to use it to help them improve their health and fitness.
Lastly, technology and feedback is great, but without quality programs you can only get so far. At Heart Zones, Inc, the magic to our Heart Zones System is that we have built into it the ability to personalize goals for each and every student. At it’s core, Smart PE is about personalization. By using technology and real-time feedback, teachers are able to pull together the ultimate Smart PE program which includes personalized programs for each student. This levels the playing field, creates fair assessment, and empowers kids to own their fitness at a whole new level.
Why Heart Zones = Smart PE
When looking at group heart rate training or group fitness technology in general, there are a number of solutions available today. While some of those are quality products, none compare to the flexibility and simplicity, or the personalization methodologies that are built into the Heart Zones System. This system is the culmination of our life’s work in understanding how to use technology to improve our health and fitness. That culmination is displayed in Smart PE. With sound science, patented methodology, and leading technology, the Heart Zones System is the only solution for physical educators ready to take their class to the next level and join the Smart PE Movement. We believe that 2017 is the year of Smart PE. The only question is, are you in?
