Last week I attended the professional portfolio showcase that was held in Park Center. At the showcase, there were about a dozen graduating students who were selected to display their portfolios because of their high quality of work along with an outstanding exit interview that is a required part of the Physical Education curriculum here at SUNY Cortland. I got a chance to look through many of my peers portfolios and get ideas of how to enhance my own. I was truly proud and excited for them being that they were all familiar faces I have seen around campus and it feels great knowing that this school prepares us all so well for what we have in store for our futures. I will be graduating in 3 semesters and I hope to display the same qualities as some of these students because they clearly all worked so hard to get to where they are right now and it truly is inspiring!

I am currently working on my electronic professional portfolio. As I complete more courses that relate to the specific standards I will continue to add more work to this. I have been looking at many other portfolios to get ideas of how to make mine stand out!

My First Prezi

Please click on the link below to view my prezi presentation that explains one of my best & worst moments in movement. I discussed the low point of my softball career & how it brought me to my best! Its my first one so it took me a while to figure it out but I eventually got the hang of it. This is something I would consider using again for other project because it puts a spin on a typical slideshow.

Motor Skills

My lab group and I created posters for the physical education classes at St. Mary's School. Each poster showed the proper footsteps and airtime for specific motor skills such as the hop, jump, skip, leap, slide, etc. These are critical skills for children to have if they are to effectively succeed in physical activities. Designing these posters was not as easy as it looks due to the fact many skills look similiar to others (skip, step, hop) so this could be hard for children to read and understand but we tried our best!

Group Dance to Mr. Saxobeat

In this video my lab group & made a quick video which allowed us to practice performing on camera. While it may seem irrelevant, this type of practice is what will help us become comfortable presenting in front of our peers and our students, and also gave us practice with using a video camera. Using technology within the classroom is an innovative way to teach enhance lessons, this is something Mr. Yang has proved to us throughout this course.
