Time for Change: One #PhysEd Blog

When I first started iPhys-Ed.com just over 3 years ago I did it as a reflection tool for myself and I decided that I wanted to blog about two things which were interesting to me at the time, Inquiry Based Learning and Technology in Physical Education. At the time I was obsessed with APPS! I was constantly searching out the next app which I could use with my students and loved finding and trying new apps and then blogging about them. In the early days there were definitely more posts in the Technology in #PhysEd blog than the Inquiry in #PhysEd blog, however I felt I needed a place to include the more pedagogical ideas I had. Hence there were two separate blogs.

As my practice has progressed through the reflection that having iPhys-Ed.com allowed me as well as my incredible #physed professional learning network, I came to realise that these two things, Inquiry & Technology can not and should not be separated.

WHAT I teach in physical education and HOW I teach physical education, through inquiry based learning or with technology integration, are not two distinct things. One does not function without the other.
Recently as I have been creating blog posts I am in a constant struggle as to which blog to post on. Is it inquiry? Is it technology? Sometimes it fit neither and I began to think it might be time to make some changes.

From today onwards iPhys-Ed.com will have one single Blog Page!

Just as my thinking changed then so too will this website. No longer will posts be separated into two categories. iPhys-Ed.com will now have one stand-alone blog for all things best practice in physical education.

What Does This Mean For You?

To be honest not much has changed but by streamlining the way I blog here it will provide:

  • A simple way to access blog posts that will help you become and amazing physical education professional.
  • A more appropriate space to discuss best practice in physical education, including inquiry based learning and technology integration.

But What About All The Old Blog Posts?

Don’t worry! All of the content created on iPhys-Ed.com before today still exists, it has just been moved. Unfortunately my blogging platform (Weebly) doesn’t allow for blog posts to be moved or imported to new blogs, so as part of this change unfortunately I have had to start fresh with a new blog.

You can find the old blog posts in the following ways:

  • Under the dropdown from the Resources Tab
  • In the sidebar of this blog
  • By using the Search function at the top of the page

How Can I Stay Up to Date With the New Blog?

It’s simple. All you need to do is subscribe to our RSS Feed using your favourite RSS Reader (mine is Feedly) or sign up for our iPhys-Ed.com Newsletter to have posts delivered to your inbox.

I hope that by making these changes it will enable iPhys-Ed.com to continue to be a place that you enjoy visiting to help you become an amazing physical education professional.
