Roberto Clemente High School integrates technology into its lessons to access a deeper understanding. With the evolution of technology in the world it only makes sense that technology finds its niche in our schools. In Mr. Tolene’s Physical Education class, he is taking his students’ performance analysis further in the current basketball unit using a slow-motion camera feature to capture his students’ form on their jump shots.
Students were tasked with executing their jump shot, then watched the playback at half speed with the instructor, who helped them pick out specific points in their technique that are correct or that could use improvement. Mr. Tolene was not surprised at the level of engagement from each of his students. He noted, “My students are tech savvy, and are naturals at use this opportunity to analyze their technique. Some of my students are seeing they are not following through with their wrist and making changes. I am happy to be a part of this process.”
