Driving Innovation in Teaching & Learning in PE
Three Top Tips from James Simms, Creator, myPEexam.org
Giving all students the same experience during PE theory and expecting the same response from them is an unachievable outcome. However, moving away from the “teacher at the front of the room” model can be a daunting prospect for many PE professionals.
With PE theory having increased weighting in the new GCSEs, making sure your lessons stretch and challenge all students is more vital than ever.
James Simms, creator of myPEexam.org, shares his top three practical tips for developing lessons which are personalised to the learner and where students can access the information at the pace appropriate to them. Use them to ensure you are equipped ahead of the new term to deliver engaging and relevant PE theory lessons.
- Reject the idea of learner ability and replace it with the concept of volatile learner performance
- Remove the distinction between learning tasks and assessments. All experiences can produce volatile data
- Reduce the reliance on one-pace-fits-all teaching/lecturing/presenting episodes in favour of self-paced lectures available from any location at any time.
James joins the speaker panel at this year’s Optimus Education PE & School Sports conference and exhibition. He will be talking in the day’s Learning & Teaching Innovation Zone about reimagining physical education through blended learning, online media and challenging teacher assumptions.
