Mark Treadwell's curator insight, July 27, 2014 4:18 PM

This has to be one of the best technology inventions ever for educators. (about $250). The Swivl takes most devices and you attached an tracking microphone to your lapel and your device videos whoever is wearing the microphone. 

 

 3 great applications

 

1. videoing your self teaching - just 10 minute sessions with you focussing on a particular skill - reflect-review-improve

2. Video your brief (10 joins max) teaching sessions and put then up on your YouTube channel for learners to go back to later

3. Attach the microphone to learners who struggle to manage themselves and then let them watch themselves. many of these children have little concept of self and seeing themselves is a revelation. MT

Brendan Jones 's insight:

"The truth lies in the lesson plans" I'm not sure how I feel about this. The case for the action is compelling, but unless these schools find more money to fund  PE, then healthy change may not be desired outcome.
