PE is the perfect subject area in which to use iPads and mobile technology. They can be used highly effectively to assess students’ performance with video records, to allow tactics and rules to be discussed and to demonstrate techniques, thus saving hours as students can view these techniques online as part of flipped lessons. Learn how to best utilise these devices even if you only have one iPad per department. The iPad’s ability to quickly record, manipulate and share information makes it an invaluable tool. The course will demonstrate how the iPad has a genuine place at the heart of PE teaching and will be delivered by one of the UK’s leaders in the educational use of iPads. NOTE: All delegates MUST bring a fully charged iPad with them, as well as the downloaded apps specified. A list of required apps will be sent one week prior to the running of the course.
