Primary Use:

This app is a database of games for physical educators and coaches. The app includes more than 200 games organized according to Teaching Games for Understanding (TGFU) categories. TGFU is an approach for teaching games in a more authentic manner. The approach teaches students to transfer their tactical understanding of game-strategies across games with similar tactics.

How App is used in classroom/gym:


The app has a unique approach that helps children learn analytical skills. Each game has detailed instructions making it easy for physical educators /coaches to follow. I use the app to get ideas for lesson planning and creating fun games,yet, quality educational game experiences for students.
