Using The iPad to Encourage & Support Physical Fitness in Schools – Resources


I’ve been invited to make a brief presentation at the 7th International Conference on Movement and Health in June in Olomouc, in the Czech Republic. My presentation is called Using Tablet Computers to Support and Encourage Physical Activity in Schools. I’m no fitness expert, but will show and share websites, iTunes U courses, iBooks, apps and other items I’ve found to help physical education instructors encourage students to become more fit. Some of the best sources are recent works by my fellow Apple Distinguished Educators Kevin Morrow and Anne Wenstrom. Here’s the webpage I created as a takeaway for the talk.
