iPad learning journals enhance skills

Educator Nick Turra tells the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) how iPad learning journals and success criteria are helping the students at Port Broughton Area School in South Australia improve their skills in physical education.

Students were filmed playing volleyball. They then edited the video footage in iMovie and analysed the videos against the success criteria. The students were encouraged to look for weaknesses in their game, which they would then work on over the next four weeks.

Learn more about this learning activity and its outcomes in this short, four-minute video.

Is success criteria made explicit to the students?
