Sqord and Physical Activity in the Anchorage School District

Fitness and wellness technology, which is an umbrella term that covers areas of wearable technology (e.g., Fitbit, Nike Fuelband) and mobile apps (e.g., MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper), is just one of many new industries rapidly expanding within the mobile market.


Given the ubiquity of these devices, it makes sense to leverage technology when it comes to public heallth interventions. In particular, when it comes to children who are even more technocentric than their parents.


With that in mind, we will be using the Sqord devices to understand how feedback, social interaction, and challenges influence children's activity levels.
