Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | Connecting and Collaborating | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

I appreciate @John Evans for sharing this on his Scoop.it page "iPad in Education".  As I work with preservice students, those in certain fields claim technology is not an option as they don't understand integration.  With this article, I can provide my students another first hand example of how PE and technology blend.

I like the idea of students being able to create video as part of an assessment portfolio in HPE - innovative way of demonstrating competence in performing skills and could be useful in documenting improvement in skill performance
Lizette Labuschagne's curator insight, June 6, 5:55 AM
our students are so diverse. in physical education both student with higher skill levels and students with lower skill levels could benefit from this app. This is exactly what I was looking for...to motivate our students, to motivate and support them all

Bloom wrote his stuff in 1956. This is just a pretty picture of some old ideas. It doesn't even capture all the dimensions Bloom was talking about. It seems to me this is just a way of using technology to push old ideas about what learning and knowing is.

Alan check the far left edge of the image. It does address the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy as outlined by Krathwohl http://www.unco.edu/cetl/sir/stating_outcome/documents/Krathwohl.pdf
Alan Ovens's comment, May 30, 2014 4:58 AM
Hi John. I appreciate the link and have looked at the articles. The point remains that the revision still represents an old way of thinking about learning and only concentrates on the cognitive domain. The first article does not appear to explain why the revision only deals with vol one of Blooms Taxonomy. What about the affective and psychomotor domains? I am curious why people keep pushing the overly cognitivist notion of this taxonomy when iPads (and more modern learning theories) give us a way of thinking about learning in enactivist and embodied ways. I think it is generally accepted that the cognitivist view of learning is fairly outdated. Mobile technologies and digital learning should be informed by more contemporary theory. I would be interested go hear your thoughts and anyone's else who wants to respond.

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Connecting and Collaborating | Scoop.it

"Proponents of the sociolinguistic perspective to the study of literacy ( e.g.Paul Gee, Collin Lanksheare, Michelle Knobel, Brian Street, to mention but a few ) view the developments of literacy and with it education as a direct result to the sophistication of the social and cultural aspect of human life. Some of them like Collin and Michelle associate the evolution of education to that of the web and hence the nomenclature education 1.0 (related web 1.0), education 2.0 ( related to web 2.0), and education (3.0 related to web 3.0). This association, however is not haphazard for there are many commonalities between each pair."

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip | Connecting and Collaborating | Scoop.it

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper.

On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."

ÈIt can be intimidating to try something new in your classroom. This is especially true with technology.

Even though I'm coming from an iPad classroom, these structures and routines are great for introducing all one-to-one devices."

Becca Wagman's curator insight, April 6, 2014 4:25 PM

Classroom Climate: This article showed me important details on implementing technology into the classroom. It stressed how to ease into applying technology into the class and how for teachers to teach students the proper way to handle the electronics they get to use. When thinking of project-based learning, there needs to be a strong implementation of technology for students to use for project research and further exploration. Since this generation is so technology driven it is important to teach students how to use technology safely. (ROUTINE)

Book Creator is a great app and can be used by very young students too.  Capturing 4 year olds talking (use the voice record feature) about a photo of them playing or a piece of their artwork is inspiring. Write their words and print their story and they can share it with their friends and families.  Adam talks here about yet another way to use this fantastic app.

iPad Teachers's curator insight, January 15, 2013 4:06 PM

I have been using Book Creator for a while now in my teaching. Pupils have created illustrated books and added video to record science experiments. This term Year 5 and 6 pupils have been using Book Creator in Design and Technology. The pupils have researched, designed and are now constructing their Animal Shelters. At each stage they have documented their progress in Book Creator, adding photos. It provides an excellent way of assessing work and for pupils to evaluate their own skills and development. At the end of the topic, pupils will not only have an animal shelter but also evidence of their journey.

And no, it’s not just chalk-and-talk in disguise. It creates a whole new learning environment for the student."
