    #PEChat Radio Hour: How To Support A Growth Mindset In Physical Education

    Here is the recording from our latest #PEChat Radio Hour! For this episode, #PEChat host Elyse Loughlin interviews Joey Feith (that's me!) on Twitter Spaces.

    This episode focuses on what physical educators can do to help support the development of a growth mindset within their students. In the episode, we explore:

    • The differences between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.

    • How mindsets affect our meaning systems and behaviours.

    • How teachers can design physical environments that support a growth mindset.

    • How peer attitudes and behaviours affect the development of a growth mindset.

    • The different ways that teachers communicate their belief in a growth mindset and how that can affect students.

    • Simple, evidence-based growth mindset interventions that work.

    Thanks for tuning in! Happy Teaching!

    Unpacking Student Motivation In Physical Education

    Unpacking Student Motivation In Physical Education

    “If you don’t do the work, then you don’t get the grade.”

    The saddest part about that cringe-worthy sentence is that I’ve said it to students before. Early on in my career, I had no idea how to motivate students in my teaching. I’d do my best to plan fun lessons, but I’d resort to a “carrots and sticks” approach when dealing with unmotivated students.

    The problem is that controlling students with rewards and consequences only leads to higher levels of anxiety, boredom, or alienation.

    It robs students of their natural love for learning and the feelings of joy, enthusiasm, and interest that once came with it. Knowing this impact, how can we best support student motivation in our lessons?

    Self-determination theory looks at human motivation and tries to understand the factors that push or prevent people from wanting to learn and grow. The theory argues that intrinsic motivation is sustained by satisfying three basic psychological needs: autonomy, competence, and relatedness.

    In this episode, we will take a look at how we can use self-determination theory to increase student motivation in P.E.

    I did my best to tie theory to practice and I'm convinced that you will have a few new strategies in your tool belt after listening to this podcast.

    Thanks for tuning in! Happy Teaching!

    What Physical Educators Can Learn From Norway’s Olympic Success.

    What Physical Educators Can Learn From Norway’s Olympic Success.

    The 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing are underway and - as I write this - Norway is at the top of the medal standings.

    Again.

    Norway is a bit of an anomaly: it's a relatively small country at 5.3 million people (which ranks it #119 in the world based on population size), yet somehow it is an Olympic beast.

    Prior to the games in Beijing beginning, Norway had 368 medals at the Winter Olympic Games (132 gold, 125 silver, 111 bronze). That count ranks them in the number one spot in all-time medal winners at the Winter Olympics, ahead of the United States (305) and Germany (240).

    So what's going on here? What makes Norway so successful at the Olympics and what can we - as physical educators - take away from their approach?

    In this episode, I'll be breaking down Norway's philosophy of "The Joy Of Sport For All" and sharing what PE can take away from the nation's approach to create safer, friendlier, more meaningful experiences for our students.

    Skills, Knowledge, and Understanding in Physical Education

    Skills, Knowledge, and Understanding in Physical Education

    Physical literacy is the foundation of physical education.

    As physical educators, it is our job to nurture our students’ physical literacy through meaningful, effective learning experiences. However, there is a common mistake that many PE teachers make that can severely hamper the impact of their teaching:

    They focus too much on the physical domain of physical literacy.

    Physical literacy exists across four domains: physical, cognitive, affective, and behavioural. Therefore, we need to look beyond the physical aspects of learning in order to best serve our students.

    It took me a while to realize this in my own teaching. However, that realization is what led me to eventually start focusing on three key areas of learning: skills, knowledge, and understanding.

    In this episode, I'll be breaking down the difference between the three and walking you through how they can help you maximize the impact of your teaching!

    #PEChat Radio Hour: Adventure Education with Mark Friedrich

    #PEChat Radio Hour: Adventure Education with Mark Friedrich

    Here is the recording from our latest #PEChat Radio Hour! For this episode, I connected with Mark Friedrich on Twitter Spaces.

    Mark Friedrich is an Adventure Education and Health Education teacher at Millburn High School in Millburn, New Jersey. Mark has been a member of Millburn's Health & PE Department for 16 years. During those years, he has created an Adventure Education program that is not only one of the largest in his state, it's also the envy of many educators out there (this guy included).

    Mark was named the 2016 NJAHPERD Secondary Physical Education Teacher of the Year and he was also the recipient of the 2021 SHAPE America Joy of Effort Award, which honors individuals who, by performance and style, have personified the concept that the effort made to enrich the goals and objectives of health and physical education, physical activity, dance, and sport is a labor of love, inspired by commitment and dedication.

    When he's not helping students through high-ropes courses, chasing snakes out of his teaching space, or participating in Tough Mudders, Mark travels across the US to present to local, state, and national organizations on the topics of teambuilding, icebreaker activities, problem solving, trust building, and adventure games.

    It was an absolute honour to have Mark as our guest for #PEChat Radio Hour and I'm so glad he got to melt our faces - or at least our ears - with his incredible passion for Adventure Education.

    🙏 A huge thank you to Mark for taking time out of his schedule to help us get fired up about adventure education! Also, thank you to the follow teachers for getting involved during our Q&A session:

    #PEChat Radio Hour: Social & Emotional Learning with Karl Mercuri

    #PEChat Radio Hour: Social & Emotional Learning with Karl Mercuri

    Here is the recording from our first-ever #PEChat Radio Hour! For this episode, I connected with Karl Mercuri on Twitter Spaces.

    Karl Mercuri is the Social and Emotional Learning Coordinator at The Priory School and a private SEL consultant across schools here in the Greater Montreal area. Originally from Melbourne (Australia), Karl actually started his career teaching physical education there. Earlier in his career, Karl was a facilitator of Kidsmatter (now Be You): a Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework that is implemented throughout Australia. He has dedicated his career to supporting effective social and emotional learning in schools. From studying challenging behaviours, to being trained in positive psychology, to completing courses in emotional intelligence and - more recently - training with The Mehrit Centre in self-regulation: Karl has an absolute wealth of knowledge and experience that he can share with the world and I am so excited to have him on the show.

    🙏 A huge thank you to Karl for taking time out of his schedule to help us better understand the role of social and emotional learning. Also, thank you to Dan (@gym_stover) for getting involved during our Q&A session!

Wow- what an honest reflection

I just listened to the episode “Begin Again” and I have never heard someone speak so openly about the challenges of teaching and the way it seeps into every aspect of your life. It is all consuming in a good way and all consuming in a bad way at the same time. I am sharing this with all of my teacher-friends.

Thanks, Joey!

I have really been enjoying listening to your pod casts that I’ve just recently discovered. They encourage me to excel in my teaching, and overall in life! Keep up the good work.
