In this episode, Greg Dryer and I have an in-depth discussion about relevance, autonomy, meaning and purpose in physical education. Greg is the Director of the Centre for Physical Education, Sport and Activity at Kingston University in the UK and has  devoted himself  to better understanding the role of physical activity and sport in young people's lives. He is the developer of the MiMove app which is currently being used by being used by over 130 schools across 20 countries to celebrate and support over 60,000 students' physical activity journeys. In our discussion today, Greg and I also dive deeply into  the role that data can play to help inform teacher practice and how the data can be used in multiple different ways to provide more information about the impact that physical activity and sport can have in a young person's life. Hope you find value in this chat. Thanks for listening.
