#PhysEdSummit Physical Literacy Sessions – Retro Badge
Here will be the listing of all physical literacy presentations that have been presented on during a #PhysEdSummit. Please enjoy the learning experience and remember if you watch three different physical literacy sessions, then you will earn a #PhysicalLiteracy retro badge for the 2017 #PhysEdSummit!
#PhysEdSummit 1.0 with Kim Hlewka & Tracy Lockwood
Session Description: The benefits of using Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) in PE classes and what change this brings for teachers and students and the ways in which teachers have to change the way they teach from traditional learning in PE. The addition of questions (how we ask questions to our students, types of questions and when we ask them) and looking for learning in the classroom through Visible Thinking Routines (VTR) has the power to really see what your students are thinking and how they view the conceptual learning in PE. VTRs are for every classroom (not just PE) but they can really have powerful affects on the learning in PE and for team discussions – a great tool to add to your repertoire.
#PhysEdSummit 2.0 with Amanda Stanec & Bill Walters
Physical Literacy Part 2
Session Description: Bill and Amanda will lead a session which will leave attendees with a deep understanding of physical literacy, and its role within a quality physical education program. Moreover, they will examine what schools can do in and outside of PE class to better support students’ and staff’s physical literacy development. In doing this, Bill and Amanda will share some history, evidence and practical tips so attendees will feel energized and strategic in next steps upon completion of the presentation. These professionals are great friends and really excited to collaborate on this session for the amazing #physed peeps in twitterverse. Oh, and yes, you will be moving!
#PhysEdSummit 3.0 with Dolly Lambdin, Jackie Lund, and Bob Knipe
Being an Ambassador for Physical Literacy: Tools You Can Use
Session Description: Life is short. There is no time to waste in speaking up for causes we believe in if we want to make a difference in this world. #PhysEdSummit 3.0 touches physical education teachers across the globe who are committed to a cause and that cause is quality physical education for every child, leading to physical and health literacy for all. We all want every child to develop the competence, confidence, habits and desire to be physically active and make healthy choices now and for the rest of their lives. This presentation showcases tools (data, storytelling, and SHAPE America Advocacy Center) that can help us each advocate within our communities (as well as at national levels in the USA) for the importance of physical education in developing physical literacy for all. By joining our voices together and using best practices we can make physical and health literacy as respected and desired in our youth’s schooling as language literacy and mathematical literacy have been to date. Gain new ways to add your voice to the chorus.
#PhysEdSummit 3.0 with Dean Kriellaars
Using a Circus Arts Instruction Approach in PE to Improve Physical Literacy
Session Description: This session will discuss the benefits of using a circus arts instruction approach in PE to develop motor competencies, confidence and motivation of grade 4 and 5 children. This approach dramatically reduced the gender gap in movement skills, and made substantial improvements in various domains of physical literacy compared to standard PE. This was likely due to the inclusive and participatory nature of circus.
#PhysEdSummit 5.0 with Dean Kreillaars
Closing the Gender Gap in Physical Literacy and Activity
Session Description: In this presentation, Dr. Dean Kriellaars will identify the gender gap in affective, cognitive, physical competence, social, and behavioural characteristics. Then he will report on applied research that has been completed in physical education and after school programming and share how to close the gap by identifying successful strategies.
#PhysEdSummit 5.0 with Dr. John Cairney
Physical Literacy and Global Development in Children
Session Description: In this talk, Dr. Cairney will explore the links between physical literacy and child health and development. Suggestions for using physical literacy as a tool for improving child health and learning outcomes, and the evidence to support will be provided.
#PhysEdSummit 5.0 with Dean Dudley
Critical Considerations of Physical Literacy Policy
Session Description: Article 3 of the International Charter for Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport clearly states that Health, Sport, and Education agencies must participate in creating a strategic vision and identify policy options and priorities that enable the fundamental right for all people to participate (or have the opportunity to participate) in meaningful physical activity across their life course. Physical literacy is a rapidly evolving concept being used in policy-making but has been limited by pre-existing and sometimes bias interpretations of the construct. The aim of this presentation is to present a model of physical literacy policy considerations for key decision makers in the fields of public health, recreation, sport, and education that is consistent with international understandings of what the construct is, and how it is to be used in order to achieve established and developing public health, recreation, sport, and educative goals. Internationally debated definitions of physical literacy and the wider construct of literacy were reviewed in order to establish common pillars of physical literacy in a policy context.
#PhysEdSummit 5.0 with Gord Zubyck
PE & LTAD: The Perfect Fit
Session Description: The Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model is a framework for developing physical literacy. This presentation will look at how the LTAD framework, when combined with PE curriculum, can provide the quality physical literacy experiences that allow every student to explore the various physical activity pathways that lead to being active for life. LTAD is student-centered, addresses meaningful competition, encourages the assessment of physical literacy, and is based on developing programs that are inclusive. This presentation will link the 10 Key Factors of LTAD to physical education.
