V. An electronic tool I could see as being useful for capturing data and reporting for the recommended regents level for Learning Standard 1A would be using a program like Dartfish. Using Dartfish in a class room would give students the ability to see themselves performing movement patterns and provide them with automatic, instant or delayed visual feedback along with teacher feedback explaining what was done correctly and what needs to be worked on. This could be a great tool because many students may be visual learners and if they can see what they're doing wrong in a movement then they can try and fix what they're doing because sometimes hearing what you did wrong and how to fix it just isn't enough. I could break down movements and compare videos clips so students can see what correct form is versus what is poor form. These videos could also be put on dvd and sent through e-mail so at home students could practice movements outside of the class room and practice to become more efficient in that movement. Students could also take these videos and post them online and reflect after each class the progress they've made. I feel this program would help out a lot in helping students becoming competent and proficient in skills (6+3 across 3). Along with helping the students, Dartfish can also help teachers see the progress students make over a period of time and get to know student abilities, so they can help give feedback based on their needs in that particular skill.
