This seems like a very cool lesson plan for a physical education class.  I like how this allows the teacher to integrate technology into a physical education setting.  Specifically, I think that students will be motivated to improve when they have an opportunity to watch themselves play on the Moodle site.  This lesson will work great for hands on learners and for visual learners when they have the opportunity to watch themselves play.  Also, the lesson provides a great instructional strategy to allow the students to monitor their progress in class. 

Technical Remarks:

Perhaps some UDL principles could be added auditory or text learners or even students with physical disabilities.  Students with disabilities could read about the game or listen or watch video of others playing and critique their performances to offer suggested areas of improvement.

For some reason I cannot upload this lesson.  I will try again later.  Thanks for sharing though, I look forward to reading it.  I like to see how other PE teachers create lesson plans for touch football.

This lesson plan is easy to follow and understand. The use of Moodle in a PE class is a great idea. By watching videos of other students and seeing what good skills look like, students will be able to improve on their own skills. As an athlete, I know how invaluable it is to see yourself making technical mistakes, and being able to make changes quickly. Receiving criticism is a very difficult thing for many students to do, but this lesson is designed in a way that criticism is welcome.

To get students more involved, students could video tape another. Students could also blog about their experience of watching themselves play football.
