Health & Physical Education ICT Conference

Guest blogger: Rob Malpeli

Peak Phys Ed organised and hosted a Health & Physical Education ICT Conference on Thursday 22nd August at the Manningham Function Centre (Doncaster) Over 100 delegates from Swan Hill to Stawell representing all education sectors engaged in an amazing day with educational leaders, practitioners and DEECD representatives.

Rob Malpeli & Amanda Telford, who formed Peak Phys Ed had been planning this conference for over 9 months and have surveyed teachers as to what they wanted in the ever growing area of eLearning and ICT. As a consequence they were able to tailor electives to suit teacher requests and needs, of which the top 4 were:

  • an ability to use ICT to facilitate personalised learning
  • “hands-on” practice with educational programs that encourage learning
  • more than a collection of apps, and more about ICT teaching strategies
  • Within the SAMR Model, examples of how ICT can assist task design and redesign

Some links from the day:

What tools were being shared?

  • Mobile devices are great for PE especially for filming fundamental motor skills and video analysis. Presenters and particpants shared ideas and common apps such as Coach’s Eye and ubersense.
  • Develop your own survey or quiz to quickly assess your students knowledge and understanding of the topics you are teaching or as a revision. Two popular tools were: testmoz and socrative
  • QR codes provide an easy and interesting way to provide webpages and URLs to students via tablets or phones. Generate your own QR code
