    #PEHangout 2 – Concepts

    I am very excited to share our second PEHangout via Google Hangouts.  If you missed the first one you can check it out here. We are all now getting the hang of this technology (almost) and it was really great to start talking about Concepts with the panel.  Alex Thomas, Jarrod Robinson and I (with support from an internet-down Ken Forde) chatted a bit about what we get up to in our PE lessons and started circling the really big topic of Concepts and how we see this within the contexts of our classes.  It was clear by the end that we felt there are three areas that we focus…
