We’re excited to bring you episode 70 of the podcast today with Paul O’Leary! Paul is a 5th Year Health and Physical Education teacher and Year 11 Dean from Long Bay College in Auckland. Paul has been a big advocate in gamification and game based learning and uses this extensively in his teaching. We spend a lot of time unpacking his pastoral role and how it links with some of the key areas of Health and Physical Education.
Paul talks a bit about some of the approaches his school took during lock down this year. Hopefully this generates some good discussion and dialogue around the challenges and successes other schools had during this period, so please add your comments and thoughts if you get some time!
Paul is always keen to collaborate and share ideas to further develop personal learning, student’s experiences and the value of the Physical Education and Health learning area, so if you haven’t already, please follow Paul on Twitter.
