Physical Education Curriculum & Software #QPE

MR future of physed

We are always striving to help teachers help their students. In 2008 WELNET® became the first web-based health and PE software. Now we’re taking WELNET® to the next level by making it a mobile responsive system. Regardless of the device that you use to record data, WELNET® will resize the information so that you will never again have to zoom to read the web page.

You will be able to manage your classes, record fitness measurements, track students’ motor skills, assign assessments & rubrics, run reports, assign behavior logs…and all of it, at your fingertips. In this world of ever-growing technology we have made it our priority to help health and physical education teachers validate their programs. We know that data drives dollars in education, which is why we have made it easier than ever for health and physical education teachers to track student growth.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) has opened the door for health and physical education to finally be recognized as core subjects in education.

Let WELNET® be the vehicle that validates your program and supplies you with the resources you need to help your students be healthy, fit, and active for a lifetime!

There are step by step  motor skills videos as simple as a ‘ready position’ to as complex as ‘striking with a long-handed implement in a game’. There are health and fitness academic content videos that use visuals and animations to help teach your students some of the more difficult health and nutrition concepts such as food groups, recommended daily allowances, training principles, and hydration. Check out 1 of the 14 hydration videos to help you get an idea.

Alex O’Brien asks two students to fill out a WELNET® Activity Log without giving them any other instruction. In the above video we see how easy it is for students to log and track their activity.

WELNET® was the first web-based software program for Health and Physical Education, and still the most comprehensive software available.

Mostly importantly, you will be able to solidify that your program is showing student growth in health and fitness concepts, as well as overall physical literacy.
