Assessment in Physical Education

One of the benefits of each student having their own laptop is that it means they each have their own camera to use as an educational tool. This can save time for the teacher and involve the students in an important part of their own learning.

Here are students using their cameras to record themselves doing an archery assessment in phys ed, then store their work, scoring themselves on a rubric that the teacher can then score themselves later. The time commitment for the teacher is very little, the students do all the legwork of collecting the assessment. The phys ed teacher simply watches the videos later and scores them accordingly, as the students build their own portfolio.
