Research Project Presentations: Fitness and Video Analysis Interventions

Here is a link to the Google Hangout recording of the presentations from two groups of graduate students at the American Embassy School.

The first presentation is from Nisha Sethi (@nishasethi2) and Madhu Kapoor.  They used an intervention to see if using additional, fun fitness activities had an effect on their students’ fitness levels over one unit of study.

The second presentation is from me and my research partners Bebe Ullrich (@bullrich) and L. LaBaw.  We used iPads with a video analysis application (UberSense) to see if video analysis had an effect on skill performance during a badminton unit.

Here are some links to another of my blogs regarding the design, implementation and results of the intervention study.

From 40 Above to 40 Below! Hello Nunavut!

Recently, I learned I am moving from New Delhi, India, to Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada.  I have been living in Delhi for almost 4 years, since August of 2009.  Both my husband and I enjoyed our experience here,  but it is time for our next adventure! We will arrive in Iqaluit the second week of April after a quick stop to go shopping at Costco, Canadian Tire, and Mountain Equipment Co-op.  I am hoping to find employment as a physical education teacher at the junior or senior high levels.
