The Power of Twitter for Physical Educators: Rob’s #PhysEd Story

For about a year now, I’ve been sharing the story of a man named Rob.

I’m not going to lie, the video I’m sharing with you has HUGE emotional value to me. The following 2:41 took three weeks to figure out how to put together, create graphics, set animations, and rehearse. I shared it last year at the 2014 National PE Institute, and now I am sharing it with you.

Why? Because the students that we have the privilege to serve do not deserve to be “Rob-bed” of the high quality physical education experience that they need in order to develop into physically literate individuals.

Hopefully, this video can help teachers who have not yet joined us online to take charge of their own professional development and become the best physical educators that they can be.

I hope you enjoy it!


PS: I hate to have to even say this (and I only am because I’ve had issues in the past): if you are going to share this video, please do not modify, crop, or edit it in any way. I would really appreciate it!

Happy teaching!
