This weekend I was fortunate enough to participate in a ConnectedPE workshop, lead by 'The PE Geek' Jarod Robinson. If you haven't already come across his website and apps and you are teaching PE it is time to have a look!
The 2 day workshop focused on mobile devices in PE and looking at some web2.0 tools and google apps. Some of the apps, such as QR codes and video playback I have been experimenting with already, but it was great to 'step back' and have look at the them again and think how they can be best utalised.
The first day back at school since the workshop, has seen me using google canned responses for email, especially useful as we had a swim meet today and lots of parents emailing in as their children were sick; wunderlist for creating todo lists; and finally I gave my ipad to a student who could participate in gym and asked them to record performances for student portfolios using 3rings. Three great ideas all from The PE Geek.
