Continuing to provide the education in physical education - experiences of the Physical Education Teacher Education Network
Howells, K. 2020. Continuing to provide the education in physical education - experiences of the Physical Education Teacher Education Network. Physical Education Matters. AUT20, pp. 89-93.
The Physical Education Teacher Education Network (PETEN) is a network of universities that provide primary and secondary initial teacher education degree programmes, led by Dr Victoria Randall from the University of Winchester. The aim of this collaborative article is to build upon the last edition of Physical Education Matters (summer 2020) to continue to provide the education in PE with experiences from PETEN. We also wanted to share the tools, ideas and resources that we have developed across all age phases (Early Years to secondary) during the pandemic. These creations have been devised by university tutors, student teachers and alumni alongside school colleagues. They have been used throughout the pandemic in schools and home school environments, with a specific positive focus on an educative approach. The contributions shared within this article include: lessons learned during lockdown; virtual CPD events to support colleagues; the use of a pedagogical case as a learning tool for PE professionals; the use of augmented reality; home-based Padlets to stay connected; the use of Flipgrid to support remote and practical performances; resource cards to support PE in small spaces; and videos designed by trainees and alumni to aid children’s learning in PE.
