We are creating an awareness around the idea of the #PhysEdSummit – A non-traditional PD day that is coming up on October, 25th! Here are the three rules…
1. Make a 15 second video of yourself answering the question, “Why #PhysEd”?
2. Use the hashtag #PhysEdSummit.
3. Challenge at least one or more people to complete the challenge in the next 24 hours!
Follow the #PhysEdSummit hashtag to check out the responses!
Yes, we did get this idea from the #icebucketchallenge. Don’t panic, no ice is needed! This is not a new idea, just a fun way to get everyone involved!
The PE community has spoken. The #PhysEdSummit topics have been chosen and now we need YOU, the #pegeeks of the community!
We want our facilitators to think “outside the box”. This is not your normal #PhysEd conference! Please keep in mind PHYSEDagogy’s mission… exploring best practices in physical education. How are you going to model this? What innovative strategies will you use to model great teaching digitally in your session? How can you engage your audience to “see” what you are presenting? What resources will you provide for the audience? What can they take away from your session and use tomorrow in their classes?
Remember everything about this PD opportunity is FREE – from the sessions offered to the guest speakers facilitating sessions. The whole idea of the #PhysEdSummit is to crowdsource a virtual conference. This is an opportunity for the online PE community to come together to create…

Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) is a pedagogical concept that has only recently been formally introduced to elementary teachers in Ontario through the revised 2010 health and physical education (h&pe) curriculum. However, it is not a new concept. Teaching Games for Understanding was pioneered at Loughborough University in the early 1980s by researchers Rod Thorpe and David Bunker. The pair acknowledged that students were often leaving schools with little knowledge of how to play games effectively, they were relying on the knowledge of the coaches and teachers rather than their own, and they had limited capacity to apply the skills they did learn in different contexts. Through TGfU, students develop physical and games literacy, as well as critical and creative thinking skills.
In Ontario TGfU had been present in the secondary school h&pe curriculum, but with the 2010 revision was scoped and sequenced down into the elementary document as well…

In a PYP school having a EA is part of the learning journey , students and teachers set the not only the rules of running the class but I like to call it adeal where we all have a vision of the best class of PE for example every time we have PE ,
If I press publish in the end of this post then this going to be my first I blog as a PE teacher ( I had an old blog where I wrote some arabic poetry !! )
Any way when it comes to blogging I think Educators who teach students always to do their best forget or I would say afraid to apply that in themselves
You know what , I am not afraid , even if I am not being perfect , I will press done and see what comes up , I hope this won’t be my last post !
Thanks for reading
