At Safford High School the students in the Physical Education department are introduced to technology in the form of computerized power point presentations, computer research and the use of digital cameras. The purpose of the power point presentation is to provide introductory information to the rules and regulations of our physical education department as well as each unit taught. The presentation includes pictures taken by a digital camera of students demonstrating appropriate behavior. Computer research is performed for the use of gathering information in various subject areas throughout our department.
Students have been very receptive to this style of teaching and it has been a needed change of pace to help promote a positive Physical Education program.
