Fellow PE teachers. Can you be of help ?

I am on the PE department of the above" Virtual School ".We are putting together an Olympics project in 2004 - to coincide with the EU 'Year of Education Through Sport'.The cross curricular initative is centered around 5 themes = 5 rings: the athlete, past, development of sport, local impact, activities/competions. You can view the OLYMPICS PROJECT template on the PE website.

Do you have any ideas, materials, proposals, you may want to contribute to the exciting project on line. The PE department is coordinating the project.

Hi Keith

I was wondering what was happenning to the olympics project. You will recall my suggestions for the science input which were part of the presentation made in Brussels last February.

I am still hoping to work with David Faure from the Biology department on something bichemical for the project.

Nick :rolleyes:

Hi, Keith,

Have a look at www.universalteacher.org.uk/grammar/demo.htm#olympics1

You are welcome to use this - I can put it on other sites, or adapt it in some way.

The simulation was made for an EFL site - a Virtual School activity.

  • Interests:I began my career as a teacher of German and French in secondary education in 1965, moving into higher education in 1971, where I taught German (and also English as a Foreign Language to students training to become professional translators) until 1993. I have been involved in Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) since 1976. In 1982 I wrote one of the first introductory books on computers in language learning and teaching, which was followed by numerous other printed and software publications. In 1989 I was conferred with the title of Professor of CALL by the Academic Board of Ealing College of Higher Education (later integrated into Thames Valley University). I retired from full-time teaching in 1993 but I continued to work as a Visiting Professor for Thames Valley University until 2001. I was the Founder President of EUROCALL, holding the post from 1993 to 2000. I am a partner in Camsoft, a CALL software development and consultancy business, which was founded in 1982. I have lectured and run ICT training courses for language teachers in 22 different countries and I sit on a number of national and international advisory boards and committees. I have been actively involved in WorldCALL since 1998 and I currently head a working party that is in the process of setting up WorldCALL as an official organisation that aims to assist countries that are currently underserved in the area of ICT and the teaching and learning of modern foreign languages. I am fluent in German, I speak tolerable French, and I can survive in Italian, Russian and Hungarian. I enjoy golf, skiing, walking my dog (a retired racing greyhound) and travelling. I used to scuba-dive regularly - my last dive was on the Great Barrier Reef in 1998 - but now I just swim at my local fitness centre.

There's section on the Olympic Games at the Winged Sandals website - which is mainly a multimedia introduction to Greek Myths and Ancient Greek History for young people: http://www.wingedsandals.com

I was wondering what was happenning to the olympics project.

Virtual school/History department situated at: http://vs.eun.org/eu....cfm?id_area=21 would like to present two new projects.

One of them “Aviation” is a co-project developed together with newly created Design department. This project is situated at: http://vs.eun.org/eu...ang=en&ov=33080

The second project “Olympic Games” is a cross-curriculum project made together by almost every department of Virtual School. “Olympic games” is situated at: http://vs.eun.org/eu...ang=en&ov=33160

Both projects shall be larger and better if people with interest in aviation and sports participate with their own contributions.
