It would be fair to say that 2020 has been quite the year. This time last year if I had told you that you would be forced to teach PhysEd from home in front of a computer, you would have laughed in my face. While 2020 no doubt held many challenges I also believe that a lot of positives came out of it as well. As an educator and as a human being we were all forced to reevaluate what really is important in our personal and professional lives. I believe I am a better teacher, and human because of it. To wrap up 2020 and kickstart 2021, I thought it would be fun to look back on the past year and share some of the highlights with you. Please enjoy 2020 Vision: A Year in Review.

The PhysEd Library
By far my biggest achievement of 2020 was the birth of The PhysEd Library. Over the past 8 years, since creating iPhys-Ed.com, I have been constantly creating resources, game sheets, assessment templates, hosting webinars and workshops and trying to help teachers all around the world. I would often get requests from teachers as to how and where they could access certain tools. With the birth of The PhysEd Library, I was able to collate all of my resources in one place. The PhysEd Library contains over 60 hours of online courses, more than 50 purposeful game sheets, game videos, assessment tools, visual templates and a community of dedicated physical educators to collaborate with. It has been a huge undertaking to get the library set up and functioning, but it is complete and in 2021, I am committed to adding a truckload of more content for our members.
Looking Forward to 2021
This coming year I am looking forward to expanding the opportunities that I can provide to support you as a physical educator. I will be offering more courses, webinars, game sheet downloads, assessment tools, visual resources and opportunities for collaboration. One big thing coming early in 2021 will be a dedicated iOS and Android app for The PhysEd Library, which will allow you to access all of your courses, games, and colleagues easily from your phone/tablet. This will be a game changer in the ease of access and use for you as a physical educator. Register below to stay updated with the release of this app and all our other upcoming news:
