The paper focuses on extending academic learning time – physical education (ALT-PE) (Siedentop, Tousignant and Parker, 1982) beyond classroom for students, where technology becomes the lynch-pin in facilitating students’ learning anytime, anywhere.

The team will share how they had applied the flipped classroom pedagogy in PE, and how assessment for learning can be employed within the flipped classroom framework, enabled by technology to augment the learning process. Assessment for learning is infused throughout the module by interspersing the learning unit with dipstick testing, coupled with peer critique and feedback.

This model of extending ALT-PE can be applied to practically any PE modules that aim to beef up on student practice time, in particular sports where students will not typically play on their own.

In the theory of social constructivism, it is theorized that construction of knowledge is heavily influenced by the social context in which the student is immersed. (Victor Chen, 2010) Using the power of social media, this project has its effect amplified through how students of the digital age interact socially online. Namely, some would spend hours ensuring near-perfect performance of video task before posting to upkeep their virtual self-image. Hence an increase in how students spend time to play sports is observed. 

Using technology to facilitate deeper self-directed learning (SDL) is also in keeping with the TPACK framework (Archambault & Crippen, 2009), where the teacher identifies appropriate content and pedagogy that can be enhanced by technology to deepen knowledge and understanding.

The team has designed modules on football and volleyball. These sports, when boosted by technology, have encouraged the students to go beyond regular lesson time to learn specific skills. A summary of key benefits of this project:

1.Improvement in skills and techniques

A summative assessment at the end of the module shows marked improvement in a fixed set of skills tested.

2.Reported hours of practice

Students reported on hours of practice before uploading videos of performance. In wanting to achieve a perfect form or performance, students voluntarily puts in effective hours on perfecting skills.

3.Increase in enjoyment and enthusiasm of the sport

Students indicated a high level of enjoyment of the sport through a pre and post-module survey. Enjoyment is also evident in student participation in class, their promptness in submission of assignments and their willingness to engage one another in deeper conversation on skill/performance critique.
