    In reply to @pe4everykid
  • pe4everykid May 9 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    I think we are all in agreement that a projector or large display of some type is becoming the norm in the #physed classroom #espechat

    Lets talk assessment next - Q2 What are some of your favorite ways to implement tech with assessment? #espechat
  • Mr_C_PE May 9 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    It needs to be for sure. It is in other classrooms within the building. We shouldn't be any different #espechat
    In reply to @pe4everykid, @PerkettPE

  • pe4everykid May 9 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    Ross, you're class set up sounds a lot like mine! #espechat
    In reply to @Mr_C_PE
  • CoachW_TCE May 9 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    maybe I don't use plickers often enough, but I feel like I take forever to explain and then scan. more practice = more effective?#espechat
  • LovePrimaryPE May 9 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    A2 video clips of Ss to play back for them when learning a skill. I'm not very good yet with all the cool apps for this. #espechat
  • foes4sports May 9 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    A2: A great option for quick formative assessment (if your kids have devices) is using the Question feature in Google Classroom. #espechat
  • pe4everykid May 9 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    Like anything, there is a learning curve - Maybe start with your older Ss and work your way down? #espechat
    In reply to @CoachW_TCE
  • Mr_C_PE May 9 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    I'd like to trade places for a day! Maybe SHAPE America will be able to fund a teacher swap somehow in the future! #espechat
    In reply to @pe4everykid
  • pe4everykid May 9 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    Yes, the video analysis apps out there really let kids "see" themselves and the learning goes WAY up when this happens. #espechat
