Digital Movement Analysis in Physical Education
Trout, Josh
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v84 n7 p47-50 2013
Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets offer applications (apps) that make digital movement analysis simple and efficient in physical education. Highly sophisticated movement analysis software has been available for many years but has mainly appealed to coaches of elite athletes and biomechanists. Apps on mobile devices are less expensive (sometimes even free), much more portable, and easier to use. This article explains how physical educators can use these types of technology to record students' performances, provide instant feedback to students, create more robust written and online exams, and help students to perform self- and peer-analysis.
