A $50 million ‘digital transformation’ of physical education curriculum for Texas schools
By JOSH BECKMANPublished January 04, 2018 01:55:50 A new physical education video for Texas public schools is making waves in the education world.
The “Physical Education” video is the latest in a series of videos created by the Texas Department of Education and the American Physical Education Association (APEA) to address how the state’s physical education programs are currently managed.
It features educators teaching students about physical education, using social media to promote physical education classes, and providing resources to students.
The videos were released Thursday.
The video features a group of physical educators discussing how physical education education is currently managed in Texas.
The video also includes a teacher who describes how she uses Facebook and Twitter to promote her classes and how she is using the app to reach students who have trouble with physical education.
The new video has been criticized by some critics who say it is unnecessary and that it does not address the issues of physical health and physical education literacy.
APEA says the videos do not address these issues.
The department says the video is an “advice document” for teachers.
The APEA is a trade association of physical, occupational and health education teachers and has about 3 million members.
It has more than 1.4 million members in the U.S.
The Texas Department for Education and APEA declined to comment on the videos, saying they have not yet been approved for release.
The department is still working on a new video for the 2018-2019 school year.
The American Physical Society (APS), the world’s largest association of medical and physical therapists, says physical education curricula need to address physical health, including mental health and social issues.
APS is part of the American Association for Physical Therapy (AAPT), which was formed in 1996 to address health and safety issues related to physical therapy.APTS has said the videos “undermine physical education standards” and “raise questions about the educational integrity of physical activity and its role in our society.”
The videos, which are about to be shown in about 1,200 classrooms across the state, will be on the curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year, according to the Texas Education Agency.
The State Board of Education voted to approve the videos in May 2017, but a legislative committee later voted to postpone the video’s release until 2019.
