Podcasting in Physical Education

As a former Elementary Physical Education teacher, I know firsthand the benefits of using technology to make my gym more interactive. Even though I now teach older students - the power of a podcast is still relevant. Using interactive podcasts in the physical education classroom is a management tool- it frees me up to work more closely with individual students and lessens in-class physical demands. Using podcasts in P.E. classes also helps to offer variety of activities to stimulate movement and activity for kids, stimulates creativity and teamwork, and most importantly promotes fitness for life. 

While you can find video and audio podcasts for the gym from others, they may not be customized to the age level of your learners or skills you want to develop. Luckily Apple tools make it so easy to create your own!
