Welcome to the PDHPE Wiki

This wikispace for PDHPE teachers originated at the AIS PDHPE conference at Central Coast Grammar School in May 2009. Since then it has become a useful space for PDHPE teachers to share their ideas and strategies in relation to integrating ICT into PDHPE.

Feel free to add links to content that you think is relevant.

AIS ICT Course - A Digital Journey: ICT tools to inspire PDHPE teachers @ St Catherine's School Waverley on 24th August 2010

Google Earth
Here's the files you will need to "play" in Session 1
First, click here and Open this of the trip John and Jo created of the City to Surf
Here's a cheat sheet to help with if you are interested (it certainly is NOT necessary)

Some movies of how to use Google Earth are found here including a few new ones uploaded Wednesday 25th August
Jo and John learnt to make Google Trips by visiting the Google Lit Trips website and playing.

Running Ahead allows you to plot a course and view the terrain and distance of that course.
Scribble Maps allow you to do something similar to this without having to use Google Earth. Click here for an example (real, current) trip by a couple and their children around Australia.

Syllabus links for using Google Earth as a T & L strategy include:
Stage 4
Strand 4 Lifelong PA Outcome 4.10Students learn about: health-related components of fitness
Stage 5
Strand 3 Individual & Community Health
Outcome 5.6 Students learn about: healthy food habits (nutrition & fluid replacement for PA) Strand 4 Lifelong PAOutcome 5.9Students learn about: planning for regular PAStage 6Preliminary Core 2 - The Body in MotionHow do the musculoskeletal and cardiorespiratory systems of the body influence and respond to movement?What is the relationship between physical fitness, training and movement efficiency?HSC Core 2 - Factors Affecting PerformanceHow does training affect performance?How can psychology affect performance?
How can nutrition and recovery strategies affect performance
HSC Option 3 - Sports MedicineHow are sports injuries classfied and managed?What role do preventative actions play in enhancing the wellbeing of the athlete?
Another idea is to use the City2Surf in Stage 6 HSC Core 1 - Health Priorities in Australia as a focus for the content area of 'healthy ageing' under the learn about: 'a growing and ageing population' (What are the priority areas for improving Australia's health?). The students could explore the City2Surf 'legends' - people who have competed in every city to surf since its inception 40 years ago http://www.city2surf.com.au/default.asp?PageID=20175 These participants are now in their 60's and over and would be a good case study to explore the ongoing activities and behaviours that people undertake as they age to reduce the risk of illness and disease and increase their physical, emotional and mental health.

Delicious is an online bookmarking tool. John's delicious account is "open", that is, anyone can view his "tags" (bookmarks)

Flickr Creative Commons
Often teachers (and students) need images to support their work. Many of the images at Google Images are subject to copyright and very small in size.
Flickr Creative Commonsallows you to access and use high quality images.

Gapminder - visual statistical data on a range of trends including life expectancy. Can be used to show trends and also discuss the limitations of epidemiological data. (Click on Australia and Rwanda and watch the data come to life over time).

"Wordle's claim is that it makes "beautiful word clouds."
An example of a wordle is this syllabus Wordle and the Rudd_apology
Tagxedois very similar, but has the added attraction of being able to apply an image to your word cloud. Use this silhouette of a soccer player to create your own.

Wall wisher
Create a space that allows students to post questions anonymously. Posts can be moderated if you choose.

if you can type, you can make movies.

Dvolveris similar to xtranormal

Trevor Norman's Presentation (Head of PDHPE - Southern Highlands Christian School)
Unfortunately, Trevor couldn't do his presentation today. It is a Prezi presentation.
Here it is as a .pez file. You will need to save it and install the Prezi viewer to watch it.
Alternatively, his presentation was recorded using Jing screen capture software - watch it here.

Bloom's DigitalTaxonomy
An interesting read that includes digital skills within Bloom's Taxonomy. It identifies digital skills that fit into each of the Bloom's areas - remembering, understanding, applying, analysing, evaluating, creating.
