Grow 4 It. Part II - Human Resources

II  On to Part 2 & Recommendations from Physical Educators.

Our second post about the G in Gather and we will dissect  “Non-Human Resources.”

I began researching this article by asking physical educators I know from twitter (an integral component of my PLN) what their favorite #physed (#physed is a popular hashtag on twitter) resources are. While almost all spoke highly of the “Human Resources” they’ve gained from Twitter and Voxer, here are some “Non-Human” resource suggestions from outstanding physical educators:

Ben Franklin- Library of Congress
  • Tim Brusseau, an Assistant Professor at the University of Utah and Wanda Taylor, a MS PE teacher in Park City, Utah both said their “go-to” is PECentral.com.
Ben Franklin Quote
  • Judy LoBianco (@jlobianc) a Supervisor of Health, Physical Education, and Nursing for a school district in New Jersey suggested SHAPE America Teacher Toolbox and SHAPE Exchange at shapeamerica.org.

  • Mike McClain (mcclain1950), Health and Physical Education Instructional Systems Specialist for DoDEA on Okinawa, likes sparkfamily.org(must purchase a SPARK program for access) and www. CDC.gov to “find out what the actual data and trends are for Health/Fitness.”
  • Amy Prior (@priorteach) HS Health and Physical Education teacher and former T.O.Y. from Charlotte, NC recommends, “Ditch That Textbook” by Matt Miller.
  • Patty Lanier (@luvtoplay) former elementary physical educator, now at the University of Central Florida, praised the book, “Originals” (How non-conformists move the world) by Adam Grant.
