This last year we have been using iPads in the PE dept to impact our teaching and learning.
Small initial steps to get staff familiar with the devices was the way we started, a little guidance on some basic apps to get staff going.
Instant replay
Sports cam
Evernote
Dropbox
These apps gave staff a chance to use the iPad for instant visual feedback, replacing our expensive but never used Dartfish system. Staff were now engaging students in a whole new way.
We use Evernote and Dropbox to track developments and access files on the go, usually in our BTEC sessions
Other apps that we’re really useful we’re coach note and coach pad, this gave students the chance to track developments in lessons and reflect on their learning.
The change has been massive and students are really benefitting from the change.
