Active Academies is a start-up company which consisted of a member of public health England and Head Teachers in Manchester. The idea was to create a web app that allowed primary school teachers a database where children could keep track of their physical exercise and be encouraged to more exercise by earning rewards for a virtual avatar.
The brief was to design a web application used by primary school teachers to engage children into wanting to do more physical exercise. It was interesting to work with a start-up company with a new idea as I got the opportunity to work on the bare bones of the project which has set the foundation for the project to develop forward. The web application consisted of a virtual avatar for students to engage with by earning rewards as well as a back end CMS system for the Head Teacher to use which logs the schools' process on how active their pupils are.
