Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning | Apps, iPad, Android, Chromebooks & Google for EDU, "Readers" for Education | Scoop.it
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.

Augmented Reality (AR) technologies are making some huge leaps into the educational landscape transforming the way teaching and learning are taking place. Educators and teachers are increasingly adopting AR technologies in their classrooms. As extensions of the physical world,  AR technologies amplify its dimensions and bring life to its static constituents. There are a variety of ways you can use AR in your class. For instance, you can use them to take your students into virtual field trips, visit world museums, animate and enrich textbook content and many more.

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | Apps, iPad, Android, Chromebooks & Google for EDU, "Readers" for Education | 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.

bencourtice's curator insight, May 22, 2016 7:30 AM
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
