学生隔离期间缺乏运动,线上体育课解决难题

学生隔离期间缺乏运动,线上体育课解决难题

乐文澜(Michal Lev-Ram) 2020年05月18日
与以往相比,孩子们极度缺乏日常运动。小学生们错过了休息、午餐、体育课和放学后开展体育活动的机会。

凯丽•斯威徳基是来自加州贝克斯菲尔德的四年级老师,与其他很多的老师一样,在过去几个月中她不得不试着在网络上教授课程。不过,她通过笔记本在网络上教授的可不只是数学和科学,同时还有体育。

斯威徳基说:“一名学生告诉我,她连续看了6个小时的TikTok视频。我对此感到非常担忧。”

受新冠疫情影响,学校的关闭已经让很多人担心今年学生们的学业会走下坡路。而让斯威徳基同样担心的是,与以往相比,孩子们如今连日常运动的机会都没有。这位资深老师指出,小学生错过了休息、午餐、体育课和放学后开展体育活动的机会。体育锻炼的缺乏应引发所有人的重视,根据疾病控制和预防中心的数据,18.5%的2-19岁美国儿童已迈入“超重”行列。

斯维德基的解决办法就是:将体育课作为重点课程,即便在互联网上也是如此。她在这一方面也颇具优势。

斯威徳基大概20年前便开始在劳瑞尔格伦小学任教。在任教伊始,她的体重差不多有95公斤。后来,她发现并迷上了《舞蹈革命》,一款视频舞蹈游戏的先驱之作,并最终斩获了13个吉尼斯世界纪录,包括《舞力全开》(随后出现的另一款舞蹈类游戏)游戏时间最长的游戏马拉松,以及24小时视频舞蹈游戏最高分等。她也因此减重34公斤,并开始将其对视频舞蹈游戏的热爱融入教学之中。

斯威徳基说:“这帮助我以一种全新的方式与孩子们以及父母建立了联系。”她在过去几年中推出了多个午餐期间、放学后和家庭康体项目,这些项目均基于视频舞蹈游戏。

就在3月中旬加州下达就地避难令以及学校关闭之际,斯威徳基几乎立即就想到了如何将体育活动融入其日常教学,如今则通过视频会议工具授课。

斯威徳基说:“我们每天做20分钟的GoNoodle,通过Zoom来一场虚拟舞会。”GoNoodle是一个备受欢迎的“动作与训练”视频网站,很多老师都在用。(GoNoodle能够让教育者分享其屏幕内容,并在其他视频平台主办“舞会”。)

在线教学和教授舞蹈对于斯威徳基来说并非难事。多年前她便已经将科技融入了其课程和日常训练当中,而且在适应新网站和服务方面也是毫无障碍。(斯威徳基还是亚马逊旗下网站Twitch上的“播客”,游戏玩家在这里做游戏直播。)不过,此举也使得其工作时长较以往增加了不少。

斯威徳基说:“所有老师的工作时长都变长了。不仅仅是因为他们觉得有这个必要,同时也是因为他们希望为孩子们提供帮助。”

的确,由于如今不得不用,一些老师在使用科技工具方面遇到了不少麻烦。斯威徳基还是其学校的“技术专家”,她说:“我们一直都在相互支持。”

对于斯威徳基来说,学校关闭最痛苦的部分一直都是坐着不动。“这让我很不适应,”每周运动35-55个小时的斯威徳基说,“在课堂里,我也不会坐着,而是一直站着与孩子们互动。”(188金宝搏 下载)

Like many other teachers, Carrie Swidecki has had to adapt to conducting her classes virtually over the last couple of months. But the fourth-grade teacher from Bakersfield, Calif. isn’t just giving math and science lessons over the internet—she’s also teaching physical education, straight from her laptop.

“One student told me she watched six hours straight of TikTok videos,” says Swidecki. “It’s very concerning for me.”

The shuttering of schools, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, has led to many concerns that academic progress will slip this year. But Swidecki is equally concerned that kids are now lacking what used to be daily opportunities to move. The long-time teacher points out that elementary school kids are missing out on recess, lunch break, P.E. classes and after-school sports. This loss of physical activity should be alarming to all—according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 18.5% of American children ages two through 19 already fall under the “obese” category.

Swidecki has an answer for this: Prioritize P.E., even over the Internet. She’s particularly well-positioned to do so.

Swidecki started teaching at Laurelglen Elementary about 20 years ago. Around the time she started teaching, she weighed 210 pounds. Then, she discovered dance video games—back then, it was Dance Dance Revolution, the pioneer of the genre. Swidecki became obsessed with dance video games, eventually earning 13 Guinness World Records titles, including longest video game marathon on a Just Dance game (a later entrant to the genre) and most high scores achieved on a dance video game in 24 hours. She also lost 75 pounds, and began incorporating her passion for dance video games into teaching.

“It has helped me connect with kids and parents in a whole new way,” says Swidecki, who has launched several lunchtime, after-school and family fitness programs over the years, all centered around dance video games.

Almost immediately, as soon as California instituted a shelter-in-place order and schools shut down in mid-March, Swidecki figure out how to incorporate physical activity into her daily lessons with her class, now conducted over video conferencing tools.

“We do GoNoodle for 20 minutes each day,” says Swidecki, referring to a popular site for “movement and mindfulness” videos that’s used by many teachers. “We do a virtual dance party over Zoom.” (GoNoodle enables educators to share their screen and “host” dance parties over other video platforms too.)

The move to teaching—and dancing—online wasn’t a hard one for Swidecki. She had already been incorporating technology into her curriculum and her fitness routine for years, and was comfortable adapting to new sites and services. (Swidecki is also a “streamer” on Twitch, the Amazon-owned site where gamers livestream themselves playing video games.) But the move has forced her to work many more hours than before.

“All teachers are putting in more hours,” says Swidecki. “Not because they feel they have to, because they want to try and help the kids.”

To be sure, some teachers are having a tougher time adapting to the tech tools they are now forced to use. “We’ve all been supporting each other,” says Swidecki, who also serves as the “technology specialist” at her school.

For Swidecki, the hardest part of the shutdown has been, well, sitting down. "I'm not used to it," says Swidecki, who exercises 35 to 55 hours a week. "In the classroom, I don't sit down. I stand up the whole time, and interact with the kids."
