Help me give my students the opportunity to use this iPad to analyze movement and create individual health plans. It will also be used to show students apps on the a large screen so all can follow along.
I am currently teaching in a low-income and high poverty school district. My students are confronted with many challenges both in and out of school. Despite these challenges, I am looking to provide my students with meaningful and authentic learning opportunities within my classroom.
My students are very clever, creative and compassionate to their fellow classmates.
This group of students loves positive attention and loves to read. About half of the students come from single-parent homes and receive free or reduced-rate lunch.
If we had an iPad we could show students how to use apps to analyze movement to improve overall health and wellness. I would use the ipad to download apps so students could track and work on aspects of individual health improvement.
I would also use the iPad with a projector and cast activities with choices so the students could choose different activities that help to increase strength,cardio and flexibility aspects of physical education.
There are several apps that our students could use to help them be successful with their state mandated Fitnessgram Tests. These apps help students understand specific movement and then helps them to reach their goals. An ipad that would support those apps would be a great tool for them to see specifically what each of them could do to be successful.
As I show them and help them use these apps, they are able to transfer the learning and practice at home.
