Lakewood SentinelWhen Jamie Leeburg took over physical education at Dunstan Middle School in Lakewood, she brought a new technology-driven approach. Students in her class use pedometers and heart monitors to keep both themselves and Leeburg updated on their progress and growth. “The students here are really embracing this technology,” she said. “It keeps them excited and motivated throughout the class to keep moving.” Dunstan joined Lakewood’s Patterson International School and Littleton’s Peiffer Elementary School in receiving recognition from the Colorado Education Initiative’s Colorado Healthy Schools Summit on March 4, as Healthy School Champions.
