What technology would you use in the classroom and how would you integrate it?
Within my curriculum area of PDHPE, there are numerous options for technology integration. Here are just a few:
|Heart Rate monitor||QR Code readers (plickers)|
|Digital video camera||Nutrition/Diet Apps (iDiet)|
|Digital devices (tablets, smart phones, wearables)||Video Analysis software (Dart Fish, Vidalyse)|
|Pedometers||Motion Capture software (sportsCad, video tagger)|
|Force plates||3D body structures (human anatomy atlas)|
|Timing gates||GPS software (maps, waze)|
|Motion sensors||Collaborative software (g Suite, Microsoft classroom, wikis)|
|Projectors/TV’s||Assessment software (kahoot, socrative, fitness testing)|
|Speakers||Fitness & games (monsuta fitness, beep test, move it)|

What are the benefits and challenges of using a Technology Integration Planning (TIP) model?
A TIP model is a great way of determining how to integrate technology into the classroom/curriculum. A TIP model is a problem-solving model (Roblyer & Doering, 2014) that enables teachers to identify and address and issues involved in the integration process.
Potential benefits of using the model are:
- analysis of current teaching and learning needs
- enhances teaching practices
- focuses on the learning rather than the resource
- revitalise teaching methods and lessons
- easy analysis to determine suitable implementation
Potential challenges of using the model are:
- lack of resources
- limited funding
- time to implement
- lack of TK to implement successfully
- lack of support from teaching staff
- most decisions made by higher management, who aren’t the main users.
