Supporting physical education trainee teachers in their use of information communication technology while on school-based experiences

By Sarah Meredith


This paper explores how trainee teachers in physical education (PE) are supported in their use of information communication technology (ICT) during their school-based experiences. The data were collected from within the context of a higher education institution (HEI) and school partnership in the South East of England. All of the schools approached had previously worked, or were working, with trainee teachers from the University of East London (UEL). These data were initially collected by using questionnaires sent out to 100 PE teachers. Following initial analysis of these data, three semi-structured interviews were carried out with the hope of developing ICT provision within the HEI and discovering how best to support school-based mentors and trainees. There was evidence of lots of good examples of work within the partnership but little to support the fact that teachers were sharing this. It is clear that, in this particular case, the potential of the use of ICT in PE has not been unlocked by the profession as yet
