How bad do you want it?

welnet trans form

I recently asked myself 3 questions as I looked at 2017. What do I want? How do I plan to get what I want? How bad do I want it? These questions are great because they can be used for anything. I chose to apply them to my professional life.

What do I want? This was an easy answer for me and has been for the better part of 2 decades. I want Quality Physical Education (#QPE) for all students. #QPE means a lot of different things to many in the #physed profession, but I don’t think anyone would argue that it should incorporate motor skill development, increase fitness levels, stress social and emotional learning and integrate fitness/health knowledge. I want #QPE for ALL students.

How do I plan to get what I want? Sticking with the script would mean that I will continue to design curriculum materials, work to enhance our software and keep getting on planes to work with educators on #QPE. The problem with this plan is that I don’t have the ability to move our profession forward fast enough and this bothers me. I’ve always struggled with patience. To speed up the process, I have decided to offer WELNET Single School Solution (SSS) FREE to any educator for the second semester of this school year. Every module we have is FREE and available to use. I plan on getting #QPE to ALL students by giving away WELNET for FREE to anyone who believes it could help them meet their objectives.

How bad do I want it? I want #QPE for all students REALLY BAD! This is why all of WELNET is FREE for the next 6 months. I understand money is an issue for PE Teachers, but #QPE should not be about money. It is about providing our youth with the physical, cognitive and emotional skills necessary to not only survive but also to thrive in the 21sr century. I want #QPE for ALL students SO BAD that I am willing to give WELNET away for FREE to all educators.

What do you want? How do you plan on getting what you want? How bad do you want it? If you want what I want, then try out WELNET,  it’s FREE! Your have absolutely nothing to lose and #QPE to gain.

Technology in Physical Education

welnet-hq-trans

Technology is here to stay. As things change it is important to adapt to the changes in order to stay relevant. This is especially true when it comes to education. Focused Fitness has the most comprehensive software out there, WELNET®. With WELNET®, integrating technology can be easier than you might think. For example, one Idaho teacher has her students bring their phones to class every Friday to take a WELNET® quiz. Can you imagine what your high school students would say if you said, “Remember to bring you phone to class tomorrow”? We have to be creative and meet students where they are.

Caldwell, Idaho- Still Rockin’ and Rollin’

Caldwell School District is a great example of physical education teachers that are willing to go the extra mile. Since receiving their PEP grant in 2009, their wellness push has grown tremendously. Not only has it grown across the district, but the entire community as well. Their articulated Five for Life curriculum in physical education allows their students to grow mentally and physical as they move through the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Focused Fitness is proud to be a part of a district that is able to sustain growth in their physical education programs.

One of the many ways that Caldwell goes the extra mile is through the use of technology. Three of the elementary schools in the district have PE blogs. The blogs are regularly updated to keep the kids and parents engaged and informed. Check them out by clicking the links below.
