Top Apps for PE Teachers – Part 21

Sportalyzer

An excellent Video analysis app with an original twist. Record your footage and you can begin to produce phases according to the various movement Screen Shot 2012-12-05 at 6.19.36 PMphases of the performance (See right).  The  phases can then be all analysed with drawing tools and text editors to produce a final PDF report that can then be shared with the student or used for assessment. Teachers and students can easily use the tool to produce posters highlighting perfect skill execution.

Another highlight is the ability to edit recorded footage to the most appropriate moment and the capturing of footage at an adjustable frame rate. Well worth the download.

Fuegos Adventure

A really fun active gaming iPad app that uses your physical movements to control the character in the game. The objective is to move and collect coins as you make your way down the river. The upside here is the intense rapid left right movement that is required to make your journey successful. Connect your iPad to an external display to take the game to a new level. A great little addition to the theoretical classroom to get the students moving.

Video Tagger

Video Tagger is a unique and powerful video analysis and assessment tool that makes it possible to capture and tag sports performance. Start recording and tap the customisable buttons to tag performance as it happens.

Eureka Sports Science App

A recent discovery with thanks to an attendee at the Dubai ConnectedPE workshop. A simply superb publication that will be used for my own professional development in the areas of sports science. I also plan to use the bevy of interactive content with my senior Physical Education students in 2013. Did I mention this superb iPad app is FREE?

CloudOn

A recent addition to my iPad, this app makes it possible to easy edit documents with a truly powerful editor that mimics the look of Microsoft Office. This is a truly awesome app that takes it to the next level with the ability to link to Dropbox, Google Drive and Box.net files. Another FREE app that everyone needs in the pursuit of true mobile computing.

FrAppTap

An similar app to Video Tagger, however with the focus being on recorded footage as opposed to live footage. The app enables you to tag elements of interest and jump to them for review. The tagged elements can then be saved to the photo library.
