Introducing The #PhysEd Show
by Joey Feith
Ok, so I’ve been working on this one for a while…
For the past few years, I’ve been working hard to share as much awesome, helpful, and quality content as possible with you. ThePhysicalEducator.com’s mission is, after all, to help you be the best physical educator you can be. In my attempt to fulfill this mission, I’ve created downloadable teaching tools, high-quality game videos, blog posts, newsletters, and even the occasional YouTube video. Today, I’m adding to that arsenal by introducing my latest initiative: The #PhysEd Show.
The #PhysEd Show is a new medium through which I’ll be sharing ideas for your teaching, interviews with incredible thought leaders, innovative resources, and lots of fun ways for you to get involved in my learning journey!
The show exists in three formats: a podcast, a vlog, and a series of live episodes.
I’m really excited to be podcasting again. Every day, I get to walk to work and listen to podcasts as I do so. Because of that, like many teachers across the globe, podcasts have become a big part of my ongoing learning.
The #PhysEd Show’s podcast is designed to provide you with thought-provoking ideas, interviews, and insights in a commute-friendly 20-30 minute format.
The first episode of The #PhysEd Show’s podcast is live. Listen to it below and be sure to check out the show notes here.
My goal is to release a new podcast episode every month (with all episodes being posted on The #PhysEd Show’s podcast page). I know that might not sound like a lot of podcasting, but I’m trying hard not to overextend myself so that I can stay balanced and keep producing content on a regular basis. Also, I think I sound like a tool in this first episode and know I can do better with the editing… but practice makes better right!?
Ok, so I kinda already had a vlog called the #ScopeVlog. That said, I hated the name and it was a pain to produce. I didn’t want to keep recording the vlog on Periscope as I haven’t been super pumped with that platform for a while now, so #ScopeVlog didn’t make sense. Also, the way I was editing the YouTube editions of the #ScopeVlog took forever and never really came out the way I hoped it would.
That said, I’ve been hard at work for the past few months teaching myself new skills and creating workflows that would allow me to produce vlogs that a) look good and b) don’t take forever to edit (which means I can pump them out on a more regular basis).
The product of all of that work is The #PhysEd Show’s vlog. Here’s the first episode:
Just like the podcast, each vlog episode will be published with a show notes post to help you find anything I mention in the episode (here are the notes for this first episode) and all past episode will live on The #PhysEd Show’s vlog page. That said, be sure to subscribe to the show on YouTube to make sure you never miss out on new episodes!
The final format of The #PhysEd Show will be live episodes which will be streamed through ThePhysicalEducator.com’s Facebook Page.
As I mentioned earlier, I haven’t been impressed with my last few live Periscope broadcasts. Facebook Live gives me way more tools to create a truly interactive and educational episode in which I get to connect with all of you in real time.
Upcoming live episodes will be announced on The #PhysEd Show’s live episode page. The first one will be taking place on November 20th, 2017. Here’s the promo:
To access the live episodes, make sure to like ThePhysicalEducator.com on Facebook. Recordings of past episodes will also be posted on The #PhysEd Show’s live episode page
I’m really fired up about all of the new content I’ll be able to produce through The #PhysEd Show and hope you enjoy the episodes as they come out! I’m working really hard at getting better in terms of all of the new skills I need for these new content formats and look forward to hearing your feedback so that I can learn how to create content you really enjoy. Please don’t be shy to hit me up with some suggestions as to how I can be better!
Thanks so much for reading and happy teaching!
