ICT’s in a HPE Physical Activity lesson

I introduced a new sport to my Year 5 class this week – European Handball. Students were emailed prior to the lesson asking them to bring their tablets/laptops out to the court for the lesson. As other students such as Lauren mentioned in this blog, one PE period per week makes it challenging to provide opportunity for physical activity and meeting the ICT challenge. As a way of integrating ICT’s, before we started any physical activity on the court, students were organised into collaborative groups and then accessed an email I had sent which contained a number of web links and YouTube clips. They watched and read the clips and then created a Google document on the Google Drive summarising key facts and information about the sport of European Handball. Students were asked to ‘share’ their document for comment.  After the lesson, students were emailed with some follow up questions to answer and provide me with the URL for their document, so I could comment. Still waiting for some emails!
