1.4.3. Objectives efficient and collaborative group work with ICT podcast tools increase the comfort level of speaking French

1.4.4. Reasoning podcasts are a great support tool in oral language learning moving forward from a podcast to an online platform where we can collaborate and share in French

2. Videocasting

2.1. Objectives

2.1.1. ICT Continuum Cognitive objective 1 Pr-3.3 designs and creates simulations and models using ICT applications View examples (examples: spreadsheet modelling of a real situation, animation of an abstract concept or process, computer-aided design of a real object...) View student friendly version I design and create my own simulations and models to explain concepts. Affective Objective M-3.1 synthesizes knowledge and information to solve unique ICT problems View student friendly version I combine what I already know, with new information, to solve new ICT problems.

2.1.2. Manitoba Curriculum Outcomes S.1.S1.B.1 Apply and adapt activity-specific movement skills (e.g., serving...) in physical activities, including individual/dual games/sports (e.g., badminton, tennis...).

2.2. Prerequisites

2.2.1. Review the acquired knowledge and skills for badminton in this unit (underhand serve, forehand and backhand, smash, etc.)

2.2.2. Goals demonstrate their ability to execute a certain skill properly and to explain it to an amateur audience step by step

2.2.3. Set context This lesson will be towards the end of the badminton unit in grade 9. The students will have learned the basic skills in class and will now need to demonstrate those in front of a wide audience through a videocast. The students will become more confident with the handling of this ICT tool and will learn to appreciate videocasting as a visual help for movement learning in physical education.

2.3. Notes

2.3.1. Lesson or Series Title From forehand to backhand in the first few lessons, to underhand serve and smash as a more offensive move. Rules and etiquette of badminton will also be covered throughout the unit.

2.3.2. Goals of Each Lesson 1. playing cooperatively in small groups with the techniques that the students already know 2. teach underhand serve and point out the differences between fore- and backhand 3. review of acquired skills, add the smash as new offensive skill; lots of small group game play 4.tournament set-up (competitive play), rules and history of badminton 5. first half of lesson will be introduction to project of videocasting for movement/locomotor learning; second half will be final rounds of the tournament 6. computer lab lesson: the students have a chance to explore with their partners the programs Jing and Screencast-O-Matic 7. the groups get their topic for their videocast; we play different kinds of small tournaments (round robin, pyramid, ladder,...) 8. presentations of their videocasting projects, giving constructive feedback; if time allows, free game play

2.3.3. Objectives Engage all students in my Physical Education class the ones that just want to play a lot (lots of game play during my lesson) the ones that want to learn skills and techniques very specifically (time to learn new skills in every lesson, plus their chance to teach it to others through videocast) the ones that are very much into technology will be able to finally teach the "athletes" something in Physical Education class (videocasting tools; feel a strong accomplishment)

2.3.4. Reasoning I want to integrate videocasting into my Physical Education class, since it has been proven in a long time that the visual feedback and instruction, the demonstration of skills, strategies, and techniques is extremely effective in the majority of youth athletes. In a narrated video, the more so audio learners will also get a rich learning experience, I believe.

2.3.5. Content free play rules and history of badminton skills and techniques different ways to play in small groups (scoring, switching, timed, etc.)-good ratio of playing time and ball contact time learning through visual demonstration: videocasting

2.3.6. Method of Instruction see what the students already know and are able to do build the skills instructions parts of my lessons from there lots of game play you learn the game through playing the game computer lab: showing the students how to use Jing and Screencast-O-Matic, then give them time to try it out with their partners (exploration and self-directed learning) from cooperative play to competitive play stressing the importance of respect in sports

2.3.7. Method of Evaluation observation of participation in class videocast: rubric will be on the correctness of the skill demonstration+audio commentary, plus on the "professional" use of the ICT tools Rubric
