In the hands of an experienced educator, technology has the power to do more than simply replace the pen and pencil. Technology empowers teacher to provide more timely feedback and engage students in self-reflective learning and create new tasks. As part of previous (unsuccessful) applications to the Apple Distinguished Educator program, the below videos highlight some of the ways I've incorporated technology (specifically Apple products) into the Physical Education classroom. As part of my on-going commitment to professional development, I've shared a number of innovative ideas at a variety of conferences around Asia from the use of Go Pros to assess decision-making through the first person perspective to the use of Google add-ons to provide high quality and timely feedback to students. These presentations can be viewed here.
Technology has also allowed me to collaborate with other departments to provide cross-curricular learning opportunities for our students. While in Hong Kong, I collaborated with the History lead to develop a location based-game using ARIS, to create a situated documentary based on the Japanese Invasion of Hong Kong. While hiking in Tai Mo Shan, location triggers would bring up relevant information related to the Battle of Hong Kong
