iPad in PETeaching and Learning nuts and bolts - 4 views

  •  
    "Having taught PE using iPad since it first came out in 2010 I have seen it grow rapidly as a tool to support teaching and learning.

    Having purchased one for personal use I could straight away see the opportunities it lent for me as a teacher with no fixed classroom.  All of a sudden I had access to information wherever I was round the school.  iPad 1 had its limitations though, namely the lack of a camera, but even without this it allowed me to make notes on learning, share videos with students about model technique and numerous other things to support my teaching, even simply planning and evaluating lessons on the go.

    Then came iPad 2 and the camera.  This changed everything and I knew straight away that this was the way forward for the whole of the department."

If getting kids physically active increases their academic scores, why is it not being ... - 2 views

  •  
    "The science is clear: If you get kids moving throughout the school day, they will do better academically. That's the case being made in the article "Building a better brain" just published in the Globe and Mail.

    The article quotes Harvard Medical School's John Ratey, an internationally recognized expert in neuropsychiatry:

    If you want to raise test scores, we have documented evidence - big time evidence - that the key is to include fitness-based activity in the day.

    Not only do schools need to start incorporating physical activity into every school day, they need to make sure that their students are physically literate, so they have the skills necessary to participate and enjoy that activity. And we know that kids who are physically literate have the confidence to move and will seek out opportunities to be physically active."

What the Heck is Curling, Anyway? [INFOGRAPHIC] - 0 views

  •  
    "It's no secret that curling is somewhat of a lovable laughingstock in the world of winter sports. Compared to the adrenaline-pumping action of ice hockey, snowboarding and freestyle skiing, a bunch of people in sneakers sweeping around a rock might seem a bit ... simple.

    As it turns out, the sport is about as far from simple as you can possibly get."
