I also participated in The National PE Institute conference in Asheville, NC. It was a big conference I had heard about through Artie Kamiya, whom I connected with on twitter. I really wanted to go as I had been told it was a great conference. I had the opportunity to meet the PE teachers who have set up Physedagogy and attended some of their workshops. If you ever get the chance to go to this conference, it's well worth it!
I have been writing for nearly five years on and off in the world of twitter, facebook groups, blogging and sharing ideas thoughts with the wider physical education world.
