I'll take a long-view look at K-12 physical education by discussing the barriers to being physically active in adulthood and then discuss how K-12 physical educators can help remove these barriers. I'll pose and discuss questions such as: How can we disrupt the current system and the dogmatic pedagogy and beliefs that pervade education? Is online physical education a good thing? How can creativity and entrepreneurship help revolutionize physical education (and education in general)? I'll attempt to provide some actionable ideas but really want everyone to leave with more questions in order to keep the conversation going.
