Teaching how to send off a leading pass, by anticipating where your teamate is running, I felt was a very succesful lesson. After watching the video of myself, I feel confident that I have improved my skills as a physical educator. My lesson included the psychomotor, cognitive and affective domain. For the psychomotor domain, the students in the class ran drills focusing on leading their teamates down the field with a pass. This domain would fit into NYS learning standard 1a and NASPE standard 1. The students in the class where also able to reach the cognitive domain, for at the end of class they recited back to me the 2 important cues connected with the lesson (anticipate and leading pass). This domain met with NYS learning standard 1a and NASPE standard 2. And last but not least the class played through the affective domain by working with partners. By doing so they were able to give each other active feedback and help each other when necessary, meeting NYS standard 2 and NASPE standard 6.

For those who attended the SUNY Cortland PE mini conference of 2010 would most likely say it was nothing short of a great experience. Personally, I learned a lot and had a great time doing so. From the keynote speaker to all the different workshops, I was kept not only entertained, but fully enriched with knowledge. After listening to Chris Xaver's very inspirational keynote speech, I headed over to Professor Yang's own workshop titled, Instant Feedback: iDance Exergame Expo and Workshop. I really enjoyed myself at this workshop, with the variety of activities ranging from different dancing video games, to powering your remote control with physical activity. I found these uses for technology to be a really great way to teach and reach across to students, especially the older ones who may have given up on the standard PE class they have been in their whole lives. Technology is also a great way to assess. By using heart rate monitors, like the ones we wore in the session, the teacher can asses the student based on how hard they try, not how well the can lets say dance. I think that is a much better way to test, and helps send a positive message across to the students.
