SPARK Webinar: Have you Augmented your PE Reality?

Recently Naomi Hartl (@misshartl) and myself (@CollinBrooksie) gave a SPARK webinar on bringing augmented reality to your physical education classroom.

The following is a brief description of the webinar itself. Have You Augmented Your PE Reality?

Augmented reality (AR) is being used by teachers around the world to maximize teacher efficiency, streamline prep and tasks, foster student independence, and transform student learning. And besides all that, it’s way cool and FUN!

So you say you only have one iPad? There are many ways to incorporate AR in response to myriad instructional challenges. AR is perfect for streamlining student entries into google forms; setting up fun, informal quizzes students can answer with a click of a button; taking your fitness circuits to a whole new level by having students scan task cards at each station, and much more!

Below is a link to the webinar. Also, make sure to check out this resource document we created. It contains information regarding how to start using augmented reality in your classroom. Please don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you may have. We are happy to help you get started using AR in your classroom.

PHSYEDagogy Podcast

This is a collaborative physical education project by Matt Pomeroy, Naomi Hartl, Collin Brooks, and Jonathan Jones. We are looking to showcase some of the best physical education teaching practices, lesson ideas, and epic events that #physed and #pegeeks across the world are doing at their schools. We will be interviewing teachers and they will be sharing the story about their lesson. They will also share materials so you can implement the idea into your physical education classroom.
