In this episode of the PE Geek Podcast, we switch focus and talk about the world of app development. In particular, I share how & why I chose to start building applications without having any prior experience & what I've learnt along the way. We also touch on the different ways that emerging technologies have made it possible for literally anyone to build their own app using nothing but click and drag functions in the cloud.

If you've ever had an idea for an app or are simply interested in how we wound up building over 100+ apps in the last few years, this episode is for you.

In this episode of The PE Geek Podcast I share 7 Observations I've made over the years surrounding the use of emerging technologies in PE. These observations have come from working with teachers all over the planet in offline and online capacities and form the basis for my thinking in the field. The list is certainly not exclusive or complete, but these observations recurrently come up in my work others.

The 7 Observations are outlined below, however we dive deeper into their context & meaning in the episode

No correlation between resources & good tech use in PE
The best tech use is invisible
It's becoming irrelevant which device you actually have
Big screens can be a game changer
Common challenges and triumphs globally
It’s become possible to clone yourself
Tech can help us increase student activity time
