My educational Fitbit proposal now reality!

In January of 2015, I proposed an educational Fitbit after watching my kids with their physical Fitbits at Christmas.

So this morning it was fun to read that the Fresno School district is using a similar product. No, vastly improved upon and well implemented program.

I still have lingering concerns about this form of extrinsic motivation applied to learning and behavior, but I seem to be the only one. The rest of the world likes points and competition and tracking.

Damn, first I invent e-books, then digital citizenship, and now this. When will I learn to copyright/patent/traemark my ideas???
