In this episode of The PE Geek Podcast, we take a look at the emerging technologies which WILL impact education as we know it. This includes technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality & 3D printing and how they're exponentially evolving and converging to disrupt entire industries. Education & therefore Physical Education will be NO different.
We back this up by what Peter Diamandis refers to as the 3 D's, namely 'Digitisation, Deception & Disruption', and how many emerging technologies that will impact education are still in the deceptive phase resulting in them being widely ignored by teachers & schools.
Finally we talk about how the technologies will make our role as educators more meaningful, allowing us to focus on what we do best and ensure that the world gets equal access to high quality education. The future is bright.

In this episode of The PE Geek Podcast, I set myself a challenge to come up with a list of apps that follow alphabetical order, selecting only one app from each letter. The process of compiling the list proved to be difficult, as many share the same starting letters, ultimately resulting in a need to select one between many favourites.
So what criteria did I use?
They needed to be Apps that I personally have used and found value with.
They could be either teacher use/efficiency tools
They could be tools to help you achieve something you couldn't do without it
They could be student/teacher resource based tools
They could be student focused and help students create or reconstruct meaning in different forms
They could be teacher professional learning aides
