The iPad is ideal for physical education

I am on record for my belief that notebook computers do not fit into “non-core” areas of education (granted, the 21st Century Skills list all of these activities as part of the core, but anyone in education knows how things stand).I came across a blog today (phyedtech.org) that addresses the use of technology in physical education, and one particular article about the iPad.

The only thing missing in this article is a discussion of specific apps that can be used in physical education, such as Coaches' Eye or some of the many play-drawing apps (for football, basketball, etc).

School leaders and IT departments do harm to “non-core” areas when they make decisions about tech integration that are based on solely the needs of “core” areas.
