Learning ICPKP on iPad

Cheshire kinesiology students are embracing learning using the ICPKP materials on iPad, and having Apple TV in the classroom. Using the iPad means that students are able to engage actively with the most up to date of the charts developed by Dr Dewe as they work through the balancing exercises in class, and they can use the various anatomy and posture measuring apps for class discussion and interactions.

All the students are working towards owning their own iPad or iPad Mini, and all of us feel we are in the 21st Century!. Thank you to Dr and Mrs Dewe and the ICPKP computer teams for the hours of hard work that have gone into making this possible for us.

Here’s a link to the Kinesiology iPad App.

Cheshire Kinesiology takes on iPad learning

Cheshire K students decided to “boldly go” to the frontiers of ICPKP techie based learning and plunge themselves into learning using iPad technology. It all sounds very scary, but actually it will be pretty simple from their point of view, with Apple TV in the teaching room, online tests now being done through the iPad instead of a keyboard/computer. For the future, it will mean that they can access all their learning materials on iPad, including all the ICPKP charts, and the interactive database of finger modes so it is pretty exciting. No more dragging around those heavy book bags when you come to class! At last.

The whole database will be on iPad and iPhone by Christmas and all students can transfer to the iPad system to get their materials online. (there is a fee for all this, but it’s pretty good).

Here’s a link to the Kinesiology iPad App.

ICPKP iPad Kinesiology

Dr and Mrs Bruce Dewe came to Macclesfield at the end of May 2013 using Apple TV to teach an enthusiastic bunch of ICPKP Paddlers how to use the new ICPKP iPad Kinesiology app.

This new venture into the world of teaching kinesiology 21st century style, had the group buzzing with excitement. The next day, Mrs Dewe taught the Pelvic Diaphragm muscles to the group, and most followed the class on their iPads as well as with the old fashioned paper copies. The group are ready to help all sorts of people with urinary, erectile and bowel control problems, so contact your nearest ICPKP practitioner if you’d like to know more.

The weekend was rounded off with an afternoon of Lego Serious Play, with lots of laughter, creativity and pinching of other peoples’ bricks.

Mastering Kinesiology Presentation

19th May 2013 – Denise Gurney – Faculty Trainer for ICPKP

Denise Gurney is speaking at the NEC in Birmingham to the Federation of Holistic Therapists. Her topic is Mastering Kinesiology, and Denise is focussing on teaching some of the delegates a technique that they can take with them into their clinical practice, as well as giving them an overview of the sometimes confusing UK kinesiology scene.

New iPad Teaching Model

May 25th 2013 – Dr Bruce Dewe, co-founder of ICPKP

Dr Bruce Dewe is travelling to the UK to present the new iPad teaching model to the UK students and faculty. This is a very exciting breakthrough in ICPKP teaching, and the students will be delighted with the new App – all new students will find their class notes on their iPad, they can make notes on each unit, save pages to a special “my special pages” folder. They can even video bits of class for themselves.

Their online exams are Cloud based and once they pass the online test their Certificate for each unit, it appears on their iPad in full colour. In the next version (due out soon – Apple permitting) they will be able to put their Cert on Facebook.

Bruce is working on a plan for “Oldies” to able to access the units they have taken and get up-to-date versions of them on iPad. Students will be able to print their own Student Assessment Journals.

Red Flags Workshop

3 – 4 August 2013, RED FLAGS

Allergy Food Testing

What is: allergy food testing?

People are now much more aware of diet and how different foods affect us. In the past, our diet would have been quite simple – we would have eaten local, seasonal, fresh food. The picture nowadays is very different and means that many people need allergy food testing. Continue reading

Pain in the neck and shoulder

Pain in the neck and shoulder is something that most of us will suffer from at some time or other. We find ourselves saying that we think we may have “slept funny” or maybe sat in a draught and our neck and shoulder has stiffened up, resulting in pain. We like to rationalise where pain in the neck and shoulder has come from so that we can figure out a way to get rid of it. Continue reading
