WOW Travel Tracker
With WOW Travel Tracker, pupils who travel actively to school each week, e.g. walking, cycling or scooting, are rewarded with a monthly badge, helping build healthy habits for a lifetime. The web-based system records all modes of travel to school and can be used on different digital platforms for pupils to input their journeys each day. It also offers schools and local authorities a comprehensive method of gaining valuable insights into school travel habits especially when used in conjunction with the free WOW classroom resources or any other active travel initiatives. The WOW Travel Tracker uses icons instead of pupil’s names, but classrooms have the option to display name tags should they wish to.
