Who said that physical and health education (PHE) cannot be taught at a distance? Annie Moreau, physical education and health (PSE) teacher at Neufchâtel high school in the Quebec City region, has created several resources since the start of the pandemic that she does not hesitate to share with her colleagues. .

It all started last spring, when she designed a few capsules and published ideas for games and activities to get children moving (hers first!) Despite the closure of schools and sports centers. “The idea is always to move with ease and discover a multitude of movements. The important thing is to stay active and have fun ”, indicates the one who wishes to promote physical activity and its benefits.

On his website, there is now a selection of videos of active educational games, chair exercises, chair drums, drum ball, crossfit and tabata that she entirely imagined and shot herself. “Digital technology brings new possibilities for physical education classes. I find it very stimulating to explore these new ways of doing things. We can show that it's not just traditional sports, like basketball and badminton, and get young people to find activities that appeal to them more, ”says Annie.

On his Facebook page, she offers an Advent calendar that could inspire more than one.

Digital lesson plan

With the start of the school year, being injured, she was brought in to teach physical education to high school students enrolled in the virtual school at her school service center. Since the courses take place asynchronously (and not live), she takes the opportunity to push the use of digital technology even further, by developing complete course modules.

She filed on his site skipping rope activities, resources to get students to develop their own training program, and a comprehensive first module on stress management, a hot topic at the moment, which should inspire other teachers to 'EPS.

She now wishes to develop other lesson plans on lifestyle habits, the realization of trick shot, the handling of the ball in free style (in basketball, soccer, etc.). “Yes, it takes time, but I think it's really worth it. I enjoy taking the physical education class beyond simple technique. In the end, I want the students to know that they have several options for moving, that it can be fun, ”she concludes.

Annie Moreau recently shared her resources during a CréaCamp. More dates will be announced for 2021, stay tuned!
