21st Century Education in New Brunswick, Canada

This was a very enlightening video of how our world is changing every minute, every day, every year. It is changing not only in personal jobs, but in life skills and technology. It states that “education is adapting to a changing world”. This very true. Our students today are technology minded. There have been so many changes over the last 5 years that if you as a teacher are not up with the newness, then it is going to be hard to teach today’s students.
As a PE teacher, I am trying to find ways to integrate technology in my class and still have adequate time for exercising. I do use pedometer and heart monitors. The student can have access to their readings as soon as I upload them into the data base. They really enjoy this feature in that they like the completion of who has a better reading on the two devices. They also can go online and see all of their FitnessGram scores as well. I will give them a read out of where they are in the healthy fitness zones and where they should be if they are not in the HFZ.
I wish I knew more about technology to make it more useful in my classes. I think the middle school age students would really get involved more with activity if they know technology was involved.
