Sport and Technology (EDPN5015)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit will deal with the use of technology in sport and introduce students to some of the most applicable coaching tools and technologies. Many new technologies can do what in the past could not be advised, can show you what the human eye cannot see, and in many cases provide support for coaches' intuition. Many of these tools/software programs can be incorporated into everyday training, as well as provide valuable information in preparation for training. Most technologies discussed will be portable or laptop based systems. Examples include game analysis, skill analysis and programming software as well as the use of technology to enhance remote coaching.
