Learn More in Less Time: Fundamental Aquatic Skill Acquisition via Video Technology
Roberts, Tom; Brown, Larry
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v21 n4 p29-31 Mar-Apr 2008
Recent advances in the technology field have changed the way video support should be considered. It is now much more user-friendly and feasible than it was as recently as 10 years ago. In part because of these significant strides, current literature supports the use of video technology in the classroom. This article focuses on the innovative use of video technology for specific aquatic motor skills used in an intermediate swim classes, although this technology can also be used for numerous aquatic activities (e.g., SCUBA classes, diving classes, lifeguard training, team practices, etc.). The incorporation of digital cameras, underwater cam-sticks, video editing software, TiVo[R] feedback, and an on-line video questioning tool will allow aquatic students to learn more in less time. This article will add a new dimension to aquatics instruction literature because of the descriptions, explanations, and video links to video technology teaching tools. (Contains 2 figures.)
