  4. 4. The Activity LO: To improve performance of forward rolls using Coach’s Eye. In groups of three, pupils were asked to assess and critically evaluate the technique used by a member of their group using Coach’s Eye. Coach’s Eye is an Apple application used by sports men and women around the world to improve performance. It allows the performer to instantly receive feedback on their performance and allows progression. See lesson plan for more details.
  5. 5. Evaluation Overall the lesson was an enjoyable and valuable experience for both the pupils and teacher. Initially I was a bit concerned about pupils staying on task with the Ipads but general good behaviour and a mature attitude from the Year 7 pupils made this a success. “Under the United Nations Convention on he Rights of the Child and Welsh Assembly Government’s overarching strategy document Rights to action, all children and young people must be provided with an education that develops their personality and talents to the full.” *WAG 2008 p4) Children’s Learning By using the Ipads, pupils were able to see and comment on each other’s performance as a form of assessment for learning. This is an integral part of the learning process as they are able to critically evaluate each other and themselves based on the success criteria that was given to them at the start of the lesson in the demonstration. “Schools in Wales should ensure that all learners are engaged as full members of their school communities, accessing the wider curriculum and all school activities and working wherever possible alongside their peers.” (WAG 2008 p5) As they used this ICT resource, they not only used technology within the lesson but developed their PE skills. Working in groups of three allowed them to practise their communication skills also. The level of gymnastics that was produced by the end of the lesson was of a high standard and the general feel form pupils was of confidence and pride. What I Did… Acting as a facilitator to the learning, circling the gymnasium was all that was required when pupils were on their main task. Some pupils did ask for advice about what steps of progression would need to be given at times. I found the technology particularly useful at this point as the pupil did not have to re enact the movement but only replay the video. Throughout the lesson, I also questioned pupils and they were able to discuss the progress of their groups with confidence as they had the evidence in front of them. It seemed that pupils’ confidence was also raised within the lesson as they could see the progress they had made within a short period of time.
  6. 6. Evaluation ctd…Impact of ICT on the Children’s Learning I felt that pupils were engaged from the start and considering they were a class of 24 Year 7 pupils, they responded in a sensible way. We have not used the Ipads a lot in PE and so I think they felt it was a bit of a novelty at first. I did have reservations about this as I thought that they boys take the opportunity to go off task and use other features of the IPad. However, as I circled the room, nearly all students were on task at all times. I do believe that using the Ipads increased their engagement as not only were they able to see themselves performing but could give accurate and specific feedback to their peers. “They use ICT to interpret and analyse information and communicate their findings in ways suitable for their intended audience and purpose.” (WAG 200 8 p6)At the end of the lesson, pupils were asked if they had enjoyed the lesson. They stated that they did and that they wanted to use Coach’s Eye more often in PE for games also . Raising the confidence of pupils is very important in PE as not all pupils are comfortable performing in front of the whole class or teacher. Using Coach’s Eye allowed them to work in their small groups and see their progression quickly and clearly. What I learnt… Coach’s Eye is an excellent resource for both the engagement an d progress of pupils in the learning space. I did find that pupils were eager to critically evaluate each other and use the video evidence to support their ideas and progress. I would definitely use this piece of technology in further lessons . However, when working on another lesson plan, using the work that had been completed, I was unable to transfer videos to the laptop as it was not compatible with the software. This is one of the negative issued I have with the spp. I found that I was able to act as the facilitator for learning as pupils were progressing based on their own assessment and the assessment of their peers. As this was constant, the learning process was sped up and all pupils were able to work at their own pace. Changes… The next time I use this app within a lesson I think I would prefer pupils to be in pairs. This is only because I felt that giving guidance and critically analysing the video could be completed by an individual rather than a pair.
