Recently I read Jon Bergman's blog regarding the flipped teaching model in the classroom and how it is not about the video. Instead, flipped teaching is about the time gained in the classroom by having students receive the lecture portion outside of the classroom. To me this is the 1.0 version of flipped teaching. This model can absolutely work in Physical Education and is the standard model in most classes. By making videos of information such as games, rules, techniques, etc. that are watched outside of class there should be more time in class to be active and participate.
However, unique to Physical Education, there is an equally vital role that the videos themselves can take in the daily education process. Because PE is a special that requires so much analysis of movement, using video to target and provide immediate feedback is vital to the learning process. In the 2.0 version of the flipped classroom, students both create and analyze videos of skill performances during and outside of class. Essentially we are flipping who is in the video from the teacher to the student!
Coaches have been using video analysis techniques since video was first available many years ago. It is only recently though that mobile devices have progressed to the point that nearly everyone who has a phone has access to a high quality video camera that can be used for analysis. Now that my classes have access to iPod touches and the Coach's Eye app, I can easily have every student participate in self and peer analysis with video. In my coaching and teaching experience, there is no better way to achieve change in students then when they can see and analyze their own technique.
