The P.E. Teacher’s Guide to Flipboard
Jenn de la Vega / May 29, 2015
Huddle up, coaches, P.E. teachers and recess monitors! Flipboard can be a great digital supplement to your physical education program for students to continue at home or for parents to know what’s going on.
If you’re new to Flipboard in the classroom, here’s how to get started.
Here are a few magazine ideas for physical educators:
- Plan activities and games for recess.
- Collect videos or GIFs for independent or supplemental workouts.
- Gather articles about professional athletes or local teams for inspiration.
- Motivate a team or class with GIFs, songs or quotes to hype them up before a competition.
- Celebrate wins with a portfolio of local game coverage.
- Suggest approved recipes or nutritional advice to accompany training.
- Share the latest fitness developments and techniques with other faculty.
- Create a brochure for your recruiting program.
If you don’t know exactly where to look for articles, start with a search for a specific topic like gymnastics. Flipboard topics can range from general interests like fitness or as specific as kettlebell exercises. These dedicated pages are updated as stories are published and/or flipped into Flipboard magazines. Follow them to stay in the know.
You can also follow these sport-specific sources to customize the stories you see on your Flipboard.
- Flipboard’s Sports section
- CBS Sports
- Bleacher Report
- Golf Digest
- Runner’s World
- SB Nation
- World Soccer
