PE App of the Week

Weekly Recommended iPad App

DecideNow - this App lets you create your own wheel specific to your needs, spin it and act upon the response. Could be used as a simple random name selector for students to answer questions or a wheel of key terms and students have to describe it. Great if you have the use of Apple TV or subsequently allowing students to randomly question others during the lesson

PE tip of the day


“@davisonpe: I like teaching Long/Triple jumps after sprints. Gets pupils linking similarities of both”

“@davisonpe: Different spin on sprint events. Get pupils to work out their speed in m/s for each event. Then compare to elite! #pegeeks”

Literacy in PE

Thought this would certainly be worth mentioning and allows staff to view the types of Literacy tasks are being used within the department. Credit goes to Mr. Collingwood for collating and creating this using iMovie

Using Smore

Smore is the web based application used to create online flyers such as the one you are reading now. It can be used in a variety of ways and I recommend that you sign up to this as a means for sharing potential pieces of information. This blog by @matt4653 suggests the ways in which he uses this as a Teaching and Learning tool.

Ideas could include an Extra Curricular magazine, information for BTEC, GCSE PE, Homework or you could even create a simple QR Code to encourage students to scan and find the flyer. The link can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Email, Blogs and ShowMyHomework

Solo Taxonomy in PE

Solo Taxonomy is something that Mr Tueart is currently using a lot and has so much potential. It is worth researching and getting your head around over the holidays. A great tool for challenging and diffeentiating work as well as monitoring and demonstrating progresss.
