How I Teach: Jarrod Robinson
by Joey Feith
The more I teach, the more I realize how lucky I am to be a part of the #physed community. Every day, I find myself being inspired and wowed by this group of amazing teachers from around the world. That’s why I’ve decided to take a second each week and highlight one of these incredible educators. This week’s post is by a teacher who has been a huge inspiration to me when it comes to all things technology in #physed. If you’ve ever thought of integrating technology into your gym, this is the guy you want to talk to. Without further ado, here’s this week’s post on the original #pegeek:
Name: Jarrod Robinson
Where Are You From: Australia
Where Do You Teach: Boort District School
One word that best describes how you teach: Creatively
What apps/tools/resources can’t you live without?
I cannot live without mobile tools, the abundance of apps and tools on these portable devices help make the once impossible possible. Portability is everything for me.
What do your #physed classes look like?
100% activity, this is something I’ve always strived to improve and constantly challenge myself to observe in my lessons. Student led activities and opportunities also feature heavily.
My classes revolve heavily around non traditional activities with a TGfU theme. Im very interested in the skill and strategy transfer that exists between the non traditional and obscure activities and more traditional counterparts.
What’s the most unique thing about your teaching?
Always challenge my teaching, seeking improvement after every session even if you thought it was perfect. I’m truly content until I’ve reflected on the session and sought improvements. Most of this reflection happens in long regular commutes behind the wheel.
What’s the best teaching advice you’ve ever received?
All students are and will always be different…Try your best to recognize this with your lessons in every possible way
