How Can You Use Technology in Physical Education?
While searching the internet for ways you can use technology, I found this YouTube video, Technology in Physical Education. It is a quick two minute video about how a gym coach uses technology in his lesson plans. He uses iPads for students to video themselves and then play them back to see what they are doing wrong. Also, he lets the kids run around with iPods and the iPod will keep track of their distance, calories burned, and their time. I plan on using these activities while I am teaching.
Another useful activity I have heard about was using iPads for videos. Students can search YouTube for workout videos, cultural dances, and even different types of games. You can make a project out of it, and have the students teach a lesson or game to the rest of the class.
