Technology, such as pedometers, hand-held devices, heart rate monitors, and games such as the Wii, help physical education teachers enhance student learning. Our students won the National Association in Physical Education and Sport technology contest by producing a video explaining how technology can be used in physical education (Video)
Our teacher education programs in health education and physical education are aligned with New York State Standards for teacher education.
Our teacher education students complete a semester of student teaching, 7 weeks at the elementary level and 7 weeks at the secondary level. Our student teaching placement sites vary (www.ithaca.edu/hshp/depts/hppe/currentstudents/stps) and we also offer students the opportunity to student teach in Cyprus.
