Ewa Makai -- One of America's top INNOVATIVE SCHOOLS 2015

EWA BEACH, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Ewa Makai Middle School is known for using technology to boost learning.

Now, the campus is getting national recognition for using it to promote fitness.

From rock climbing to dance to full on workouts, Ewa Makai students track every movement in physical education on digital tablets.

"We use the iPads to record our videos of us weight training," seventh-grader Marcus Lelauti said.

Added eighth-grader Elizabeth Gritton said, "When you review yourself doing it, you can see your mistakes."

Heart monitors add crucial information to student's profiles.

"So now they are accountable and they can be self-directed on how much they need to exercise and how much is enough," physical education teacher Jan Combs said.

Ewa Makai Principal Edward Oshiro said the school created "Tech PE" in 2012, and has been growing it ever since.

"We put our money where we thought the emphasis should be and we bought a lot of technology," he said.

Start-up costs for the project were $35,000.

Ewa Makai bought iPads and other gadgets with school funds, grants, and donations.

That work paid off.

IMPORTANT -- Annual Notification of Privacy Rights

CLICK HERE FOR FERPA NOTICE




Federal laws require the Hawaii Department of Education (DOE) to annually notify parents, guardians, and eligible students (18 years or older) about privacy rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA). Under FERPA, the DOE must also designate what student information it has determined as directory information and how a request can be made to withhold such information (i.e., opt out) from being disclosed, unless FERPA guidelines allow disclosure without consent. Additionally, in accordance with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), the DOE is required to provide designated military recruitment personnel (in Hawaii, the military's Inter-Service Recruitment Council, or IRC) the name, address, and telephone number (including unlisted numbers) of secondary school students (grades 7-12).
