Earlier this year I blogged about a new website I had just finished working on, known as ‘Active Globe‘. Well I’m excited to say that Active Globe has grown to well over 10,000 online users who together have ran/cycled and walked there way around the world TWICE.
So what does Active Globe actually do? Quite simply it allows you to turn your students Physical Activity into a real world travel experience, taking you around the globe to achieve your fitness goals. See it in action below;
When you or your students participate in Active Globe you join other schools all over the world that are working to increase their students’ fitness. You will be able to track your school’s progress and compare its ranking to other schools throughout the world. This adds yet another fun and competitive element to the program that will motivate your students even more. Your class also works together to complete an agreed class goal, while individual students also work to complete their own distance based goals.
Active Globe also rewards your students Physical Activity automatically with badges and certificates that become more difficult as their fitness grows. Students and Teachers are automatically sent the certificates when they are achieved, so they can simply print them out and present them.
You can even choose to help your students by providing them with a custom pedometer to enable easy capturing of distance based Physical Activity or connect your Runkeeper, Moves or FitBit accounts for automatic distance logging.
I built Active Globe to help motivate and improve student physical activity levels within my Year 5 & 6 students, however decided to release it to the masses with the hope that it could could do the same for others. I’m proud to say it’s doing exactly that while also being shortlisted in the Australian Mobile App Awards for 2014.

In recent months The PE Geek blog has undergone a complete rebuild & redesign. It now uses a larger and more cleaner user interface that makes the content even easier to access and read. This is just the start of an enormous amount of new actionable content coming to the Blog in the coming months.
In conjunction with the website rebuild, I also launched a brand new build of The PE Geek iPhone/iPad App which has already been downloaded thousands of times. With the success of these two rebuilds in mind I thought it was time to update the Android & Google Chrome Apps to match.
Well, I’m excited to say that these are now ready for FREE download via the links below;
The Google Chrome extension works in the browser to “Automagically” alert you to new content from the Blog, Podcast & YouTube Channel. You can see it in action here.
Leave a comment below sharing your thoughts on the new website look and app designs, and I’ll pick a winner to receive a FREE PE Geek Membership. (Drawn at the end of July 2014)

Simple Transfer Pro
I often get asked during #pegeeks workshops for a quick and easy way to get photos and videos from the iPad/iPod to a computer form easy storage. While I’m a major user of cloud based storage solutions like Dropbox/Google Drive they can often be quite slow when transferring larger files.
With this in mind I absolutely love the Simple Transfer Pro app which easily lets you copy photos and videos between devices that share the same wireless network. This makes it possible to transfer large video files from your students iPad to your computer; or to another student or teachers device in seconds. An absolute must have.
Easy First Aid
Easy First Aid is exactly that; A super easy way to track and record First Aid incidents and injuries. This FREE app came to me after dealing with an injury during a practical PE session. With Easy First Aid you can quickly capture vital First Aid Information including time of incident, assessment, treatment and referral details. You can even attach Photo & Video evidence to support your Incident direct from your Camera roll or Dropbox Filter and Communicate First Aid Incident Reports via Email & Dropbox. Check it out in the video below;
Another powerful quantitative self app; designed to track your daily efforts to meet 30 minutes of Physical Activity. All you need to do is place your device in your pocket and get moving.Walk. Run. Dance. Bike. Everything counts. Human automatically picks up your walks, runs, bike rides and other exercise of one minute and longer.
The number of active gaming apps on the store is certainly growing. Motion Rugby is simple. Hordes of angry Enemy Rugby Players are coming to get you! Can you evade their tackles by actually weaving left and right to survive all 40 Levels and score Maximum Points? Lots of fun.
