VLOG Summer Break

With it being the summer holidays in the UK I have decided to take a short break during August. Truth be told this also co-incides with a wasp sting to my eye which isn’t a great look for being in front of the camera.

I would, however, like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have viewed, commented and shared my VLOGs this year so far. They are a challenge to do and the positive feedback helps along the way.

In looking forwards and thinking about what VLOGs would be beneficial I would welcome any suggestions for topics on future VLOGs. Please comment below or tweet me if you have any suggestions, as this will certainly help me in creating relevant VLOGs as I return back in September to VLOGGING.

See you soon 🙂

VlOG 14: Sport and Sport Education

Sport plays a major role society and culture and is strongly positioned in national and international policy documents as playing a key role in personal and social wellbeing. This VLOG explores how we can use the Sport Education model to educate young people about sport. For example, aspects that include affiliation to teams, formal competitions (as seen in the UK premier league), culminating events (as seen in the Superbowl), festivity (as seen in the Olympics or through the culture of different sports), and many more of the wider aspects of Sport that involve more than just playing and/or performing.

VLOG 13: TGfU: Moving Beyond Warm Up, Skill, Game

Games are an inherent feature of physical education. This VLOG explores the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) model and (1) why we might need a different approach to teaching games (2) what TGfU is and (3) how it works.

Examples are provided on Action fantasy games and how games can be modified through TGfU.
