My Students

My students continue to amaze me year after year. They work hard during fitness testing, and work even harder at team sports. I have a melting pot of ethnic backgrounds, and a wide range of socioeconomic status. With all these differences, students are able to embrace the diversity and work together collaboratively throughout the school year. Establishing a safe and comfortable environment is a priority, and my students prove to me every day that working together as a team is more efficient than going at it alone.

My Project

These iPads and protective cases will enhance student learning by allowing them to explore skill sets outside of teacher assessment alone. Students will do fitness related research, find where popular sports originated, and have a unique opportunity to use QR codes in class.

In a world where so many students are already technologically inclined, these iPads would only bring a deeper connection and understanding to Physical Education.

In order for my PE classes to become 21st century, I first need to embrace this generations technological advancements. The iPads (and protective cases) would be a key foundation of next Level Physical Education.
