Rockstar PE Teachers in the Making
Have you ever been Punk'd in a class? Well that's how we start our Basics of Effective Instruction in PE (EDU 255) because in order to best help you, we have to first see what you can accomplish right now. It is a pre-assessment of your current teaching skills and knowledge and we will refer to these videos as starting points and for analyses of effective teaching strategies. If you haven't already seen your video, they can be found on our YouTube Channel.
Today we will show you how to grab the EMBED code so that you can display your videos on your blog or website so that others can easily see it.
I wanted to share with you a video of an interview I did for Good Morning America Health in NYC just over a month ago. Besides teaching, my main focus is on using technology to improve health-related behaviors and attitudes and the primary way I do that is by using exergames as a stimulus for physical activity.
Please leave a comment here on what your reaction and thoughts are to using games for exercise, therapy or as a gateway towards other physical activities. If you don't agree with me, then please tell me why.
I am looking forward to working with all of you and getting to know you better so that we can really make an impact on children's attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge towards health and fitness.
"Guiding and inspiring youngsters in the process of becoming physically educated and healthy for a lifetime."
