RunKeeper Application

The RunKeeper application is beneficial to those who are trying to track their work out progress. This application offers a GPS Activity tracker, iPod integration, Audio Cues, Calorie Burn Counts and Activity sharing on social Networks. Additionally, you can manually enter your workout into the application.

One of the best features of this application is the Audio Cues. While you are running, the application will speak to you, letting you know the distance you have completed and how long you have been running. Additionally, you can set a playlist of songs from your iPod to play while you are using the application.

As this application is entirely free, I would encourage anyone who can benefit from the application to give it a try.

How I would use it in my classroom:

This application can be used in a cross country unit or any other unit that involves running. Students  can track their progress and set goals for their future workouts.
