Abstract

Game Centred Approaches (GCA) have been present in the Australian sporting community for the last ten years and more recently as the focus of physical education lessons in some Australian schools’ curriculum, especially in NSW. However, the effectiveness of GCA as a teaching method is limited by the skill of its practitioners, especially in developing the questions needed to generate dialogue based on game play to generate learning opportunities for students in classes. This chapter will outline how the use of mobile audio devices were used by preservice physical education and health teachers at a New South Wales university to enhance their understanding of questioning methods, the development of dialogue and the pedagogical use of GCA in physical education lessons.
