#PEGeeks Directory – There’s an app for that!

April 19, 2013

PE Geeks Project

Clicking on the link above leads to a Google Docs form describing the PE Geeks Project in detail.

In a few words, the project involves building a directory of physical & health education specialists, which will include information such as name, twitter handle, email, country, state/territory/province, city, level teaching, and school.

I will be making this information available to all online, but I also plan on building and releasing the PE Geeks app.

The PE Geeks app will, as previously stated, serve as a directory for #pegeeks.  Contacts can be categorized alphabetically or by country (for now, may add other categorical options in the future).  Additionally, with permission, I do plan on making Adam Howell‘s #PHYSedagogy YouTube series & Joey Feith/Nathan Horne‘s #physed podcast readily accessible from within the app itself.

I also hope to bring in some basic chat features including a main feed where app users can see what’s happening and interact accordingly.  Of course, these features are completely optional.

Overall, the main goal with the PE Geeks app is to be able to carry with you this remarkable listing of physical & health education specialists/professionals/educators.  Social media platforms are excellent sources of professional development (especially Twitter).  At the end of the day, the PE Geeks app allows PHE professionals to find other PHE professionals and choose whether to connect with them through the app itself or whether to bring it to another online platform, whether it be Twitter, email, or anything else!

At this moment, these are all ideas floating around my head and will be spending a good portion of the summer trying to bring this from idea to reality before the beginning of the following school year.

Last but not least, I’d like to make it clear that this app will be 100% FREE (of course!!!) with no advertisements whatsoever.  There is no monetary profit with this project – I just want to give back to the community that’s given plenty to me and has supported me with all my endeavors.

As always, thank you for your continued support and always having my back!

    My name is Duane Nelson and I am a student in EDM 310 at the University of South Alabama. I have really enjoyed reading this post and looking forward to downloading this app. This is an amazing source to use as a directory of physical and health education specialists. This app is also a great source to see how other specialist are interacting in their fields. Thank you for this amazing technology tool that can be used in education departments.
