We found ourselves deep in discussion on the evolution of pedagogy this week. Our conversation covered the political, social and structural changes in education in BC, and Canada more broadly. Admittedly, we are no experts in the history of elementary academia, but it was nice to pause for a moment and reflect on the ways in which past trends influence present decisions. For Robinson and Randell, an understanding the history of physical education is important as it helps us understand physical education today (2014, 13).
What events do you think have been most fundamental in shaping physical education curriculum today? How do you think the curriculum today will effect future physical education programs?
