Time: 9am ET (0900), August 15
Speakers: Noel Vigue (United States) and Dave Lyth (United States)
Intended Audience: Before and/or Afterschool Activities, Future Professionals (PETE), Physical Education
Session Description: We’ll explore the measurement and evaluation of the physical education program at Kennedy Middle School in Natick, Massachusetts, and how we link student expectations, grading and responsibility into fitness-focused courses. In our PE programs, students use heart rate monitors to examine their fitness levels. We will also discuss overall school culture, classroom physical activity, and before/after school programming. How can you make fitness the focus in your school? What are some roadblocks you may run into and who are your allies that can help support the cause? This presentation will look to address these questions and look to help you learn from our successes and mistakes. We will explore the link between brain science and the positive role exercise plays in several aspects of learning. It will also explore ways to build school community through exercise and discuss how to get more people involved and kids to buy in.


Small Space Fitness Can Be a HIIT!
Time: 10am ET (1000), August 15
Speaker: Seth Martin (United States)
Intended Audience: Physical Education (Grades 3-12)

Other tools such as Explain Everything and Google Forms will also be briefly highlighted throughout the presentation. Plickers and Kahoot serve as quick check, formative assessments that can be done in a small group or whole class setting. These assessments provide valuable insights to educators on student understanding and learning acquisition, and can help guide future PE lessons and curriculum planning. In this session, the three presenters will explain how Plickers work, demonstrate a quick example of how to scan the Plickers in a classroom setting, and give simple organizational tips to help implement them. We will also share a live Kahoot experience to help #PhysEdSummit 3.0 participants understand how to use it with their students and how to easily get it set up for your teaching environment. Sportfolios are an amazing, rich authentic learning tool that PE teachers can use with their students to capture and record students’ skill development and growth In PE. Book Creator is one app that will be shared to highlight how students can develop, organize, and analyze a PE profile of their physical education journey. Sportfolios can be used to help students self-assess and monitor their individual progress and motivate student learning, and are a great resource that can be shared with parents!


ABC Fit
Time: 11am ET (1100), August 15
Speaker: Glenn Young (Canada)
Intended Audience: Future Professionals (PETE); Higher Ed; Physical Activity, Recreation, or Sport; Physical Education (Grades 3-12)

How can we collaborate with other physical educators to align our expectations and assessments? Andy and Sarah will answer these questions, while discussing the similarities and differences between their curricular documents. This session is intended to shift the way many physical educators currently think teaching should look like, and refocuses it to the way we think it should appear.


Teaching Less and Learning More: Effective Planning for Assessment and Evaluation
Time: 11pm ET (2300), August 15
Speaker: Bernie Holland (Australia)
Intended Audience: Curriculum; Future Professionals (PETE); Physical Education (Kindergarten-Grade 12)
Session Description: Does your health and physical education (HPE) program articulate the critical knowledge, concepts and skills you want your students to develop in a sequential scope and sequence? Careful planning within the limitations of your setting will result in a more clearly defined program, making the task of assessment and evaluation less stressful. How do you cover the breadth and depth of the HPE curriculum in the time allotted to HPE? This presentation will challenge you to think about planning student outcomes from the perspective that we cannot be all things to everyone and expect to be effective, and that we often overestimate the content that can be learned. Examples linked to the Australian Curriculum will be used to highlight the premise that teaching less can allow your students to learn more! Concepts applied to these examples can be generalised to your HPE curriculum.

Session Description: During this session you will be introduced to two game changing teacher aids. I would like to share with you how I use the pedagogical tool, the “Flipped Classroom” with an interactive, learning management system, “Schoology.” I have used different learning management systems before (Edmodo, Moodle, and Haikulearning), but now focus solely on Schoology. Schoology offers me the chance to keep momentum in my teaching when my students are not with me. Instructions for class are given ahead of time and videos can be watched at the time that suits them best. Trending topics can immediately be shared and discussed with students. The “what,” “when,” “where,” “how,” and “why” questions are nowadays simply answered with, “Check Schoology.”
