Top Apps for PE Teachers – Part 43

Obstacle Workout

An amazing new app designed with the sole purpose of helping people get fit for the obstacles of life. The app couldn’t be simpler with just one click, Obstacle Workout will automagically create a fresh 30-minute high-intensity workout every time. No thinking required.This then leaves it up to you to your students to get their sweat on by following the clear video and audio instructions.

In a Physical Education classroom, you could easily project the app onto a large screen and have the students follow along with the videos while you get to work one-on-one to assist. Another great option would be to have a student leader follow along to the app, which is facing the student while simultaneously leading a group of their peers through the exercises.  In this example, the student becomes the instructor while following the guidance and support of the obstacle workout app.

LastPass

Having worked with teachers all over the world, I’ve seen first hand the sheer number of people who struggle with usernames & passwords. The problems tend to come down to one of three things

  1. People forget the passwords and need to reset them
  2. People use the same passwords over and over on every website and account they have
  3. People use terribly poor and insecure passwords

If you identified with any of the statements above, then LastPass will CHANGE your digital life.

Since using LastPass over 18 months ago, I’ve completely changed my digital security practises for the better. I no longer use the same password for every site, but super complex passwords that are stored inside my vault. The best part about it is that LastPass will automagically log you in when you appear on a site you have details stored for.

With LastPass, you only remember one password – your LastPass master password. Go and download it instantly, along with the Google Chrome extension, it will change your life.

  1. Obstacle workout. “No thinking required”. Oh my, why is this under a heading of physical ‘education’? You can do better than this Pegeek. What is the educational purpose besides getting your sweat on?

  2. Resources like this provide opportunities to bring in experts into the classroom with the app developer Simon Taylor having immense experience in the field, which benefits. It’s like bringing in an expert to take a yoga session or dance class. We’ve used this outsource model in a rural town to deliver breadth and expose students to things we couldn’t deliver ourselves.

    The app was also recently used with year 12 PE students to model a training session around specific fitness components. They used the videos to reverse engineer the elements that made the session.

    There are a myriad of ways this can be used to meet educational outcomes. I try to look for value in all and I always remember that I write for a global audience, many of whom find a resource like this extremely useful in many fronts.

    Best of luck with your work
