I am new to the Weight Training program and have begun using it in my weight training classes.  I would like to know if you all have your students bring in their computers to log their workouts? I am finding that too much time is being spent navigating the program with the computer, and I am looking for helpful tips for using the program in the weight room.

Hi @idanceiteachirun ,

 

When using Chromebooks or computers, the best option is to use Rack View. This allows 5 kids to share one device. They are then usually off to the side on the ground or a table. Kids can then use them to reference their next exercise, sets, and reps. They should be viewed as a reference and resource, not as something they carry with them through the whole workout.

 

Here is one use case of a teacher in a similar situation using them successfully: https://plt4m.com/success-stories/turning-tech-into-an-advantage-in-pe/

 

I’d be happy to connect with you over a quick zoom and discuss some strategies further, and possibly connect you with other users. You can schedule time with me here: https://learn.plt4m.com/meetings/alex-relph/plt4m-training
