A discussion of best practices in the modern Physical Education classroom

    Augmented reality, or AR, opens the door for various possibilities in a Physical Education/physical activity setting. Augmented reality works similar to a QR code, but instead of a QR code you have a target. A target can be a picture or even a real-life object. Once the target is activated it can overlay an object onto your screen, take you to an URL and much more. A great example of how the overlay works is Anatomy 4D. To see how the URL feature works, watch the following video, which briefly demonstrates one... Read More

    Last week I blogged about augmented reality. I briefly discussed some of the possibilities with AR and showed a video demonstration I created about how to place a URL within a target that linked to a Google Form. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the capabilities of AR. There are endless ways this technology can be used in a Physical Education class and to help increase physical activity outside of school. As I discover applicable uses for AR I would like to share them with you.... Read More

    As I dive deeper into the world of augmented reality I am recognizing more opportunities for creating engaging activities in physical education as well as making targets that classroom teachers can use for physical activity within their class. I am continuing to use the program DAQRI, which allows you to create and share your own targets, to integrate augmented reality into physical education. As a review, a target is an item that is scanned to make visible an overlay which appears on top of the target object. DAQRI gives you the ability to create multiple overlays using the same target by utilizing the... Read More

    Augmented reality is a great tool for education, and it is so simple to use. All that is needed is a mobile device and a target for students to scan. For more on the basics of augmented reality see Creating Augmented Reality Fitness Task Cards, Using Augmented Reality to Increase Physical Activity Outside of School, and Augmented Reality: Building Resources and Student Independence in Physical Education. The latest way I’m using augmented reality within my class is as a tool to assess students’ cognitive understanding of learning outcomes. How it Works While students are participating in specific...

    Lately I have received a lot of inquiries about how to use the DAQRI 4D studio. Below is a tutorial covering some of the functions of the 4D studio which will help you get started. I will soon be posting a blog that discusses various ways you can use the 4D studio as a physical educator. Sign up for a free DAQRI educators account here. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I wanted to take moment to show you my latest augmented reality target which is an interactive game board called “What’s Your Zone?” After seeing a really cool picture tweeted by Andy Vasliy where he and his students identified various ways different rates zones positively impact the body I was inspired to create this fitness game. How to play   Students can play in pairs or larger groups. One student will start by rolling the dice and then scanning the game board target. Once the target is scanned, a 3D brain will appear (left) in the middle of the... Read More
