ICT For Educators: Integrating technology in PE

ICT For Educators: Integrating technology in PE | Complexity thinking and learning | Scoop.it

" I recently had the opportunity to join our PE team at a PD hosted by Jarrod Robinson http://thepegeek.com/about/ ; - also known as the PE Geek http://thepegeek.com/ ; - on integrating technology into PE. Jarrod introduced us to a number of great tools and resources to help PE teachers make better use of technology in their lessons. As he pointed out, professional coaches have long been using cutting edge technology to train athletes and mobile devices now make it possible for anyone to access these kinds of tools at a fraction of the cost and with much greater ease. Our PE teachers enjoyed the practical, hands-on focus of the PD and have already started implementing what they have learned into their classes."
