Top 8 ‘Apps’ for PE Teachers – Part 2

1 – Superbodies HD – Peel away the human skin to see reveal exactly what takes place at a physiological level amongst elite athletes. The app is available for either iPhone/iPod/iPad and starts off with the users selecting a focus sport. The app then launches an introductory video narrated by Dr Greg Wells, before it takes to inside the body. From this point on the app really excels as you navigate through the blood stream via a simple yet exciting navigation system. As you approach points of interest related to the focus sport, the app switches to a video explanation or tidbit of information. The net result of this app is a totally immersive experience for students and teachers which dramatically enhances the learning of human bodies in movement. A must have, grab it here.

2 – CricketCoach – Don’t let the name fool you. This app is a full scale video analysis tool that allows for dual screen analysis. Although the inbuilt library includes videos of various cricket shots, users are able to record and use their own videos. This ultimately means that you can film and analyse your recordings from any sport you desire. In recent weeks we have been using this amazing app to analyse student performance in a variety of athletic field events with a high level of success.  Cricket coach is available here


3 – Burst Mode – Burst mode is an excellent app that allows you to capture the perfect image in a fast moving activity. Simply set the amount of frames to be captured and the timing of these frames and hit the record button to capture a burst of pictures. The user can then go through the frames one by one to review the execution of a specific skill or movement pattern. Great for coaches or students interested in improving their performance.

 

5 - Tempo Perfect – This app turns your mobile device into a fully functional metronome that can be used by PE teachers to allow timing of all sorts of exercise. Simply set your desired temp and your away. We used this recently in senior physical education to time a step test that allowed students to explore the physiological response to exercise.

6- YoYo tEST – This app allows people to undertake the Yo-Yo intermittent recovery test completely from their mobile device. Not only does it guide your through the setup of the test, but it allows users to keep a record of their performance  and compare their performance to associate norms. A must have for anyone looking to develop a student understanding of fitness components and training programs.

7- eClicker Host – This nifty little application allows teachers to setup and administer a multiple choice quiz directly from the mobile device. The app also produces a direct URL that students enter in their internet browser to complete the test. As students complete the questions, the app produces an excellent breakdown analysis of results which they can use to frame further teaching and discussion.

8- iPadio – This app is perfect for mobile blogging allowing students to record their thoughts, feelings, responses to questions and anything else that they desire in a flash. Use it in practical classes or excursions to share student understanding and connect learning from the outdoors with theoretical content. For a similar mobile blogging project check out a ‘Journey through the Grampians’

  1. Hi Jarrod, 8 great apps – btw I’m an avid ipadio user, and we won an award last year for using it in ESOL classes. As far as Burst Mode is concerned, love it – and have a different use for it. We have 10 new pups in the house, and how hard is it to photo them? Well, I’m going to try Burst Mode!

  6. Tempo perfect is great for runners and I use it with my elementary classes. Runners should take approx. 180 steps per minute. This promotes, forward motion, less jarring of the knees, and far less up and down bobbing. You plug it into the radio and have students stride to the beat! I usually start kids off around 170 steps and work up.
