Beverlye Magnet School students got a chance to exercise their minds during P.E. on Friday, assembling tetrahedral kites and flying them.
Lauren Aboytes's insight:

Students were able to exercise and learn math by flying and building these kites. This is a really fun idea and the kids will remember this project forever!

A new study has found spending more time in physical education classes helps students develop muscle strength and doesn't increase their risk of broken bones.

Lauren Aboytes's insight:

Younger students (K-5) should have more physical education. When I was a student, we only had PE once a week and it did not seem like enough time! This will keep kids in better shape and motivate them to go outside more!

As mentioned in a blog post earlier this year, this incredible app makes it possible to easily tag video and produce what is essentially a highlight montage. Essentially the user plays back recorded video and taps the screen when interesting events occur, tagging them with an associated keyword. On completion users can review the tagged events by keyword and export directly to the camera roll. Brilliant.

Definition of Physical Education

Definition of Physical Education | Physical Activity in Education | Scoop.it
Some people are often mistaken in defining physical education. They often assume that physical education with sport education. Simply put, physical education is defined as a process of education through physical activity.

Via Robin MeMe Ratliff
Lauren Aboytes's insight:

Most people are confused with the definition of physical activity and physical education. This article defines physical education. It is important students experience physical education.

How Sitting on a Ball Helps Kids Focus and Do Better In School

How Sitting on a Ball Helps Kids Focus and Do Better In School | Physical Activity in Education | Scoop.it
Learn how sitting on a ball improves focus and helps kids write more clearly. Ball chairs (and balls used as chairs) might be just what the doctor ordered to help fidgety children, especially those with sensory processing disorder or ADHD.
Lauren Aboytes's insight:

Teachers can implement this in their classroom. This is great for a student diagnosed with ADHD or any student. This can help with their posture and it can get the energy out of the students. Students will be able to focus in class instead of having to sit in uncomfortable chairs.

Via Craig Crossley
Lauren Aboytes's insight:

Students need to run around and play to get rid of their energy. They cannot sit in a seat for hours at a time. Even just getting up to stretch every 15 minutes helps. However, we should try and get more physical activity in schools.

Hannah Chappell-Dick's curator insight, June 14, 2013 2:26 PM

When I was in Jr. High, I hated gym class so much. & I know exactly why:

1. The boys got competitive and would get mad at me if I messed up so...

2. I didn't want to "try" in case someone made fun of me and..

3. I didn't want to be sweaty.

I thought it was ridiculous that we had to be in gym and tried my very best to avoid participating. The problem was, I had teachers that absolutely LET me (and most of the girls) not participate. So, if none of the other girls were doing it, why would I go and make a fool of myself?

That's not how it should be! I think one of the problems is that there aren't enough PE teachers who want to engage everyone and do things well. Many that I've been exposed to are more interested in coaching and PE "teaching" is their "in" to the school sports program.

Goes back to the idea that our education system is broken because we don't value teachers monetarily as highly as doctors or engineers or lawyers, so the brightest minds (who want or need high salaries) feel pressure to go towards the high paying jobs.

We need passionate, inclusive gym /teachers/, not just people who know about sports.
