Episode 15 - Empowering Your Students using The Sports Education Model

In this episode of The ConnectedPE Podcast we discuss the popular Sports Education Model and how I structure the model within my PE Classrooms, walking you though each step of.. For those unfamiliar, The Sport Education or SEPEP model seeks to provide an authentic means for students to engage in Physical Education. It reflects the practices of social competitions outside of a school context while also working toward building a more student centred learning environment. Success using this model is achieved by giving teachers an opportunity to take a step back from the traditional ‘direct instruction’ method ultimately enabling students to guide their own learning with their peers.

These values are sought through team affiliation, festivity, responsibility, formal competition, competitiveness, reward and fun. To achieve this, the model drives students to take on roles & responsibilities that are outside the traditional boundaries of physical education. These roles can vary depending on a school’s resources, however, include anything from; umpiring, coaching, timekeeping, scoring, media teams, statisticians and much more.

Episode 13 - Flipped Physical Education - What, Why and How? with Carl Condliffe”

During this episode of The ConnectedPE Podcast we explore a recording from the recent online conference. During the session I'm joined by Carl Condliffe of www.mystudyseries.co.nz, who highlights exactly what flipped learning in physical education is, why you should flip, and ways you can go about flipping your own classes.

The practical nature of the physical education learning area makes it extremely well suited to a flipped classroom approach. The flipped classroom model involves a reversal of traditional teaching, where students are exposed to new learning material outside of timetabled classes. This can be done in a number of ways, but the use of video in the flipped classroom is becoming more popular.
