Let's face it – secondary students are hooked on their mobile devices and especially social media. In 2015, I thought to myself, "How can I use social media to get my students to engage in more physical activity outside of the classroom?" The #active365 challenge was born! After three semesters of engaging my own students to demonstrate Physical Education outcomes outside of class through social media, two brave Alberta teachers took on the #active365 challenge with their own classes for the purpose of my thesis! Join me and get the whole story, with all the resources you need to start your own challenge on Monday!
