Really? On-Line Physical Education Classes Coming to High School [Video]
If I was in high school I would have loved this, I couldn't stand high school P.E. Especially swim class, when we were forced to change into speedos in a stinky locker room....Yikes!
Yes, it's true, on-line phys ed is starting to make it's way into the school system in some cities. WRAL is reporting that North Carolina's Virtual Public School will be launching an online high school physical education class this fall.
Here's how it works, pupils will instructed to view an online video demonstration of a physical activity or sport given by a teacher. The students will then be required to film themselves practicing what they just watched.
For now, this is a pilot program. The effectiveness will be determined at a later date.
Is an on-line gym class a sign of the future?
