1-Hour Workshop
Title Compete Locally – Win Globally: The i-Olympiad Project
Programme Educators' Conference
Days Offered Wednesday October 24, 2012 (14:30-15:30)
Description

Each international school around the world is separated by time, space, facility restrictions and/or insufficient faculty or funds to host numerous track and field events. Many schools have athletically talented students but no team in which to train or travel to a regional international school sporting event. For the first time, the i-Olympiad project will allow students from international schools to participate in numerous track and field events locally (on the campus of their own school or nearby facilities) while actually participating in a global event for that sport. Learn more on how your school can participate in the 2012-2013 i-Olympiad Project. This can be a stand-alone project or embedded into the physical education curriculum.

AISA is supporting the i-Olympiad project, a virtual sports competition initiative that will be linked to the AISA Schoolink (a Moodle platform available to AISA members - schoolink.aisa.or.ke)

Objective
  • Participants will be able to learn how regional and worldwide virtual sporting competitions can be implemented;
  • Participants will be able to enroll their schools and effectively participate in the i-Olypiad project.
Target Audience Athletics Directors, Physical Education Teachers and Administrators
Conference Material None.
