Health and PE and e-learning

As new online tools and resources become available, new opportunities present themselves for improving learning and teaching approaches in ways that meet the individual needs of diverse learners.

In health and physical education, the focus is on the well-being of the students themselves, of other people, and of society through learning in health-related and movement contexts.

Planning to use digital technologies – questions to think about

  • How could you rethink your health and PE planning to incorporate digital technologies so that they support learning and teaching?
  • How can you use digital technologies to enable students to:
    • access a broad range of information
    • sustain and form new relationships
    • organise and manage tasks
    • record and analyse their performance
  • In what ways can digital technologies assist you in teaching and assessment?

Use or create instructional videos to prepare the students for the lesson to come.
