Top Apps for PE Teachers - Part 28 | The P.E Geek

Top Apps for PE Teachers - Part 28 | The P.E Geek | New Teacher Institute | Scoop.it

"This truly innovative mobile app allows users to turn their device into a speed camera and see exactly  how fast they kick a football. The app guides your through the process of setting up the kick so that the app is capable of accurate detection. You will firstly start by selecting if you are right or left footed and then the app provides a frame overlay that you must position the ball over your resting soccer ball. Once setup its all up to the kicker and the app to track the overall speed, angle and estimated kick distance. It even records your kick and replays it back to you in super slow motion."

What Can Angry Birds Teach Us About Universal Design for Instruction?

What Can Angry Birds Teach Us About Universal Design for Instruction? | New Teacher Institute | Scoop.it

Prof. Hacker shares a unique perspective on how Angry Birds can teach us about Universal Design for Instruction and Universal Design for Learning.

 

"I think that Angry Birds is so fun to play because it helps develop our meta-cognitive skills. Throughout playing Angry Birds, one must pay attention to the strategies being employed, adjust one’s play as needed to achieve certain goals and objectives, and transfer what you have learned about a bird’s capabilities several levels ago to the current level.

 

In short, Angry Birds is a powerful metaphor for learning. As I was recently playing the game, I could not help but think: what if my classroom was more like this? Would students have a better learning experience?"

 

Consider the following:

> Angry Birds involves practice without penalty.

> Angry Birds offers the opportunity for constant feedback.

> Angry Birds inherently teachers that different tools have different purposes.

> Angry Birds rewards perseverance.

> Angry Birds gives no time limit.

 

"No wonder we are all addicted to this game! Now if only we could ensure that our classrooms are always safe spaces to practice new strategies, offer students a range of possibilities for how to succeed in their learning, give our students constant feedback, and support knowledge transfer within and among our courses."
