I was recently very fortunate to share my thoughts on personalised learning within PE through a Connected PE online conference. There are many different approaches to personalised learning, in this video I share how Drive by Daniel Pink and The Power of Inquiry by Kath Murdoch impacted my thinking and practise; these books recognise the importance of student choice within learning, preparing students to learn without a teacher and the importance of developing transferable skills i.e. self-management, organisation critical thinking.
I often ask myself 'are students taking home what they do in PE and applying it in their lives?’ and 'how am I enabling students to lead more active lifestyles beyond school?' Through these questions and reflecting on the work of Daniel Pink and Kath Murdoch I tried implementing 'iTime' with Grade 4 students; and this is what I shared with the Connected PE community and with you here.
I would like to thank Jarrod at ConnectedPE for giving me the opportunity to share my learning journey with others as well as the parents who gave me permission to share the examples of students work used in this presentation and in my blog post on iTime. Connected PE is a fantastic resource for PE teachers - very much a Netflix of PE professional development, you can access all the webinars from this years Connected PE conference by clicking here or sign up for access to 100+ hours of PE PD gold.
