[prMac.com] Burlington, Vermont - Track and Share Apps, LLC. is pleased to announce Track & Share 3.4.0, the app that lets individuals track what matters to them and find correlations of how things are related. With the app, users track moods, improve habits, manage health, and more. Embraced by the Wauwatosa School District, who purchased 280 copies, the app can also be used in an educational setting to teach students class material on human behavior and research methods.
Nicole Vitrano, AP Psychology teacher at Wauwatosa East High School, was looking for better ways to teach her class material ranging from the biological basis of human behavior to research methods used in social sciences. She found it in a cool app that brings it all together. Vitrano, whose students at first used the lite version, about the Track & Share app: "I loved having students use it to track their sleep and look for correlation between sleep and diet, exercise, mood, and stress."
Vitrano's colleague, Andy Zietlow, AP Psychology teacher at Wauwatosa West Highschool, looks forward to his students using the app in the coming school year.
Zietlow: "Entering and analyzing the data is straightforward. This is a great way for AP Psychology students to get started with hands-on data capture and analyses."
How does the Track & Share app work?
Students use an iPad, iPhone, or iPod to configure their own tracking program on the Track & Share app. Everything can be customized, from labels to icons that come with the different scales. Several life domains are already set up for those who want to start out of the box. The app offers statistics to analyze the data, or students can share data easily via email for discussion and further analyses.
Now available: multi-person upgrade for Special Needs Ed. Track & Share as well as Autism Tracker recently received a new feature that allows teachers to track several children on one device. This feature together with the app's openness for custom set up is especially useful for supporting Individual Education Programs (IEP). Teachers and parents decide which measures and educational goals make sense for each child.
Uwe Heiss, Founder of Track & Share Apps, about the new feature: "We make tracking apps that people can relate to. Custom configuration allows people to see themselves in the app and in the data. That makes it easier to keep tracking and to understand what works."
Track & Share Apps will present this new capability for special education at the Touch Technology Applications for Children with Special Needs Conference on September 17th, 2012 in St. Louis, MO.
