Physical education: a mobile application validates and stimulates physical activity outside the classroom

Published September 2, 2020  |  Physical Education

Rachel Surprenant Teacher, Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu

Can free mobile applications such as Runkeeper and Runtastic help ensure that students in  the 103 Physical Education class are engaging in the physical activity they are supposed to outside of class? This is what I believe after testing it with my students and studying the topic for my master's essay [in French]. By also asking my students to send me pictures of themselves while they do their physical activity, I get authentic results and, most importantly, I make the course more motivating for the students.

An Open Education Resource for Physical Education

Cindy Cook B.Ed. (P.E.) Teacher, Collège LaSalle

The Physical Education department at LaSalle College is small; there are 3 full-time and 4 part-time teachers. When we decided to create our own, tailor-made course materials, several members of the teaching team got on board. It has taken the shape of a digital format textbook, or eBook, which we called Moving Toward the Benefits of Physical Activity. Cindy Cook and Marc Beauchamp did the writing and content-checking, Samantha Haas edited every chapter, and Sylvain Desmarteau did the Word formatting, layout, graphic search, creation and set up of the hosting site (presently a Google site).

No More Excuses: 3 Apps to Get Students Moving in Phys Ed.

Natasha Stobert Teacher, Heritage College

Staying active and leading a healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways of finding balance, and a great way to live a happy and fulfilled life. Not finding time to exercise is a common excuse that we all use. Despite this challenge, it is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. One way that I motivate myself when I exercise is using technology to help me stay on track. There are a number of apps I have been using with students in my Physical Education courses, 3 of which I would like to share with you.
