I am not going to lie, I straight up struggles with this. Finding blogs/articles that I wanted to follow and read. I always feel like I am a doer I like doing things I am a kinaesthetic learner as well so sitting and reading articles, not my favourite. BUT with that being said the resources that EDTC300 has provided me such as Feedly which is a resource that brings articles all in to one place, wow is that handy. Also bringing everyone in this class and in EDTC400 together, I can review and read their blogs with minimal research. We are able to share ideas that are similar to our own interests which is awesome!
One thing I really enjoy about Feedly is that I am finding really good articles on Physical Education that I was struggling to find before, but more importantly they are geared towards utilizing technology within the gymnasium..
Yes, we use technology in the gym. We don’t just sweat and run in circles, sorry to burst your imaginary 1950’s bubble. Utilizing technology in physical education is incredibly important because students are progressing, so should we as educators. Hence why I decided to take this class, just wanted to keep up with the times. So with all this joy in learning all these resources from class and classmates I came across a great blog from The P.E Geek which is literally a guy from Australia who is an advocate for physical education and the integration of technology. *Mind Blown*
Anyways, he posted back in December his 100th post and in celebration of that he created a blog post of 100 ways to incorporate technology (WITH APPS) into the classroom/gymnasium he even puts them under categories. Why work when the work is done for you right. So unfortunately there was a podcast that was incorporated with his post but I could not download it and could not figure out how to listen to it, but I still thought the post was incredibly useful. Check it out, I dare you.
