If you have read this blog before you would be familiar with my undeniable support for the use of technology within Physical Education, after all, this is the entire purpose of this blog. However today for the first time in a loooong time I taught an entire 7 period day in the outdoors teaching a variety of sports and sports specific skills. The kids in all classes absolutely enjoyed their day and were smiling, laughing and bonding as a team while developing their own skills. This very fact reminds me that regardless of how exciting new technologies are, we can never replace the need for actual physical activity in our lives. Inspiring kids to participate in sport for life is the reason I became a Phys Ed teacher, and as we know technology can easily get in the way of this.
So is this the end of my blog????
Absolutely not!!! The argument here is that Physical Education needs to remain blended.
