The technology that I found that could work for analysis was the cell phone. The phones today have great video capturing capability and since I have one and most of the students do as well, the ability to have it in the gym or classroom at any time is not an issue. By using the cell phone, students can record themselves or their peer in an activity and then be able to see what improvements need to be made. If you do not understand this, consider that in math when a student is struggling with a concept, their work on the paper is a point of reflection; this is not possible with physical activity without video. Another use for the video would be for me to shoot and then be able to reflect on the lesson as well as assess the students with very little difficulty.
There are a few points that concern me however, including the rules of the school involving cell phone use. Basically, cell phones are not allowed during the day in middle school and often the students do not even have them on. In phys ed class, they typically keep them in their locker and so bringing them to class could create an issue where they would not have a spot to put the phone “away”. I also need to find out how this technological implementation would conflict with the privacy rights each student has. Would it be a problem recording a student for assessment purposes or having a student watch themselves in action? The answer to this is likely no, but I wonder if I would have to delete the video immediately or make sure no students are recording their classmates for later broadcast.
