Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | @ict4champions | 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

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

Redefinition: (SAMR) Creating new learning tasks using the iPad (September Blog Post)

Redefinition: (SAMR) Creating new learning tasks using the iPad (September Blog Post) | @ict4champions | Scoop.it

The start of term has quickly come around and it has certainly been a busy one. I have been in 6 schools already and there is certainly a great deal of enthusiasm about using the iPad to support learning.

 

I blogged a few months ago about choosing the best apps for use in the classroom and finding ones that allow for wide use across the whole curriculum rather than closed content apps that have one specific purpose. In July I attended the ADE conference with Apple and there was lots of discussion about the SAMR model (pictured) which is a theory highlighting how technology can be used in education. It starts at the bottom with Substitution (my example of which would be a simple eBook with no interactive features or an app with a moveable clock face) and moves up to Redefinition. Redefinition is the goal for technology in education; to be able to create new tasks that are not possible without the use of technology. I have been discussing this with teachers on my training and thinking about it in terms of my own teaching.

 

When planning lessons and training I have been keeping in mind the SAMR model. What has struck me instantly in both cases is how streamlined everything becomes. The school iPads have been reduced to apps which cover just over one page with apps like Book Creator, Explain Everything and iMovie forming the core. Pupils creating a book that includes video, voice-overs and images is not possible without technology and the iPad has proved to be a master at this type of activity. It may be worth considering the SAMR model next time you are looking for education apps on the app store.

 

Book Update

In line with the streamlined approach to using the iPad in Primary Education, my book: A Guide to the iPad in Primary Education has recently been updated to include less apps and more activity ideas. The September update will include over 40 minutes of video tutorials and will be updated for free every month from here on in. It is available for £3.99 on the iBook Store and the update will be available shortly. Please follow this link.

Have a good start to term.

The framework could help influence how we choose apps for our class - trying to understand it from the Maths Education's point of view.

How To Integrate Education Technology With Scaffolding

How To Integrate Education Technology With Scaffolding | @ict4champions | Scoop.it

As teachers we think about scaffolding for our students, but at times we neglect to consider scaffolding when asking students to use new technology in the classroom. This post shares experiences from two teachers and their use of technology. It includes a great table that begins with the "Helpful Hing: Never assume that your students know how to do anything when it comes to technology."
