The purpose of this course is to demonstrate various ways to use simple technology (e.g. PowerPoint, QR Codes) that can be integrated into your PE classes. Detailed instructions on how to create technology integrated lessons will be provided.
This course is designed to teach the student how to create various Power Point presentations that can be used to teach several skills in their PE lessons. The student will learn to create a presentation that can project an obstacle course on a rock wall. The student will learn to create a Power Point presentation that provides two ways for students to practice throwing toward virtual targets on the wall. The student will also learn how to create a Power Point Presentation where students can participate in a Shadow Dodging activity. Finally, the student will learn how to create QR codes using exercise videos created by themselves or found online. The course also includes a bonus session which will give the participant an overview on creating a Power Point presentation where students will participate in a Virtual Simon activity. Students will view an introduction session, 4 presentations, review notes for each presentation, and then complete 4 assignments, one for each presentation topic.
