Getting to record podcast interviews in person are so much more enjoyable than over Skype. Even better than that though, are interviews that take place outside of New Zealand!

For the penultimate episode of the year, #NZPETeachercast is broadcasting from St Kilda in Melbourne! A group of teachers and Directors of Sport have been on a travel scholarship to some outstanding schools who are doing innovative things with their ADP. While it is really hard to paint a picture of how these schools are implementing these programmes, we do our best to explain some of the key features and take aways from our observations.

I am joined by the one and only Celia Fleck who featured on the podcast way back at episode 7 and took over as interviewer with episode 17! Also joining us for this session is Matthew Cleaver who is Head of Physical Education and Health and New Plymouth Boys High School.

Keep an eye out for some video logs coming soon that will allow you to see some of the facilities we have observed throughout the trip.

In today's episode we hear from an individual who is about to start his teaching career. Jack Stewart will be working at Rongotai College next year and we have a brief chat about some of his experiences of education growing up, what his teacher training was like, and what he is looking forward to most next year.

In 6 months time we are going to revisit some of his thoughts and ideas and see how he is progressing in his new career!

In this weeks episode I get to sit down with Design Thinking fan Ximena Aitken from Island Bay Primary School. I am still amazed when I talk to some of our outstanding Primary educators to hear hear how committed and passionate they are, and also how different the learning is from when I went through Primary school 30 (ish) years ago.

Ximena is a bit of a Design Thinking Process pro so we spend most of our time talking about that, but we also touch on a prototype she has developed which helps gamify professional learning.

You can get in touch with Ximena (@Edk8R) via her Twitter profile: https://twitter.com/Edk8R

On a fairly calm and quiet Halloween evening, I was fortunate enough to have Dave Meaclem (Rongotai College first XV coach), open his home to share a beer to two while talking leadership.

I have enjoyed watching Dave not just develop and educate our students, but also empowering them to take up leadership roles and make positive decisions. Throughout this episode we get to hear how he fosters leadership among his athletes, but we also get insight and wisdom from a coach who has spent 32 years fine tuning his craft.

Earlier this month I was extremely lucky to find myself in the Middle East of all places! As a masterclass presenter at the Connected PE Conference I was able to share my knowledge around gamification and flipped learning.

One of the highlights of the trip was being able to sit down with and ex-pat Kiwi who has recently made the move to Dubai with his family to teach. Being in the United Arab Emirates is definitely an eye opener, and Greg Thurlow describes some of the challenges he and his family face on a day to day basis as well as some of the great experiences this opportunity affords. A great listen if teaching internationally is something in your short to medium term plan!

In this weeks episode of NZPETeachercast I have the pleasure of sitting down with Australia's most entertaining Science teacher (an unofficial title I have given him) - Pete Whiting! I love teachers who game, and Pete is a die hard gamer from way back. We spend a good amount of time discussing the implementation of gamification with his classes but we also delve into his passion for flipped learning and touch on his success using a Genius Hour approach with his students.

Check out the links below to find out more about Pete and explore some of the things we discussed in the episode:

To kick off term four (in NZ schools) I am super pumped to have a very good friend and superstar coach and athlete on the Podcast!

Jason Koster is a Commonwealth Games bronze medalist, Olympic judo coach, business owner and co-founder of Fit Futures Learning Institute which provides online learning and education to help develop high quality personal trainers.

In today's episode, Jason discusses what drives him, elaborates on aspects of his coaching philosophy, addresses strategies to manage loss and grief, then highlights what it means to have a strong tribe and community behind you.

In the last episode of term three, I have managed to wrangle a teacher here at Rongotai College into sitting down for a chat.

Matt Eagle is a Social Studies teacher who has invested a considerable amount of time, effort and hard work into building a community of learners within Rongotai College and the surrounding community. Whether that be through teaching social studies, coaching basketball or role modelling what it means to be an engaged and reflective learner, Matt brings a wealth of knowledge.
