#EdCamp PE

A New Model of Instruction for Physical Education

Created by Lori Minka - Inspired by Ideas From Twitter, The Seconday PE Voxer Chat PLN, and Innovative Teachers and Consultants That Have Shared Their Message

A model copied off of the #Edcampedu movement and adapted for PE. I'm Excited to combine the ISTE Standards with the Physical Education Standards, and I am currently going through a trial run as we speak! Working out the kinks one day at a time! Trying to add more assessment to keep it educationally sound in tracking what students know, understand, and can do! This SMORE is hyperlinked to assist you!

GENIUS HOUR CONCEPT WITH STUDENTS CLAIMING THE 80% TIME TO CONNECT, COLLABORATE, AND CREATE

I claim the first 20% of class time to use for teaching content knowledge, and the students get 80% of the class time to run their #EDcamp PE Units of their choice. It's amazing that students are more attentive so I can get through my material more quickly and easily.

10 STEPS TO SUCCESS WHEN RUNNING #EDCAMP PE CLASS

  1. Give students the opportunity to facilitate, coach, or lead units
  2. Have the facilitators, coaches or leaders assign jobs (athletic trainer, equipment manager, statistician and scorekeeper, timer)
  3. Require facilitators to have a game plan
  4. Use a checkpoint sheet at the midpoint to assess
  5. Require a final product or project that incorporates using technology
  6. Teachers: Assist facilitators with documents, links, handouts if they're struggling
  7. Have students reflect after each EdCamp and incorporate their ideas into the next unit
  8. Have students design and create as much as possible - see logo below!
  9. Use SeeSaw to help be in each and every camp, each and every day
  10. Encourage students to speak as much as possible and use PVLEGS as a guide

Special Thanks to Dr. Aaron Beighle

A phone call in the Spring of 2017 from Dr. Aaron Beighle, Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion at the University of Kentucky, sparked my motivation to continue with this process. I was just about to begin a two-week trial period of #EdCamp PE Class and was very hesitant as there were so many unknowns. A message came through on Twitter to talk on the phone and after playing phone tag I was able to connect with Aaron and inspired by his thoughts and ideas about students having voice and choice in Physical Education. Had this phone call not happened I might have given up on what I know in my heart would be beneficial to my students! Thanks Aaron!
