NZPETeachercast Episode 13 – Basketball as a vehicle & teacher of life

To kick of 2017, we’re having a focus on elite athletes and coaches who are also educators.

Todays guest is Zico Coronel from Rongotai College. Zico is an exceptional teacher and basketball coach. He has been the Assistant Head Coach of the Wellington Saints for a number of years, has coached in many schools around New Zealand, won a variety of championships with his current junior basketball team, and more recently was named Head Coach of the New Zealand U16 Boys team.

I love the way Zico infuses his passion for basketball within all aspects of his teaching!

Gamification books

Further to my webinar via the Connected PE Online Conference this evening, here are books I have read on Gamification:

Actionable Gamification by Yu-Kai Chou

Gamify Your Classroom by Matthew Farber

The Gamification of Learning and Instruction by Karl M. Kapp

For the Win: How Game Thinking Can Revolutionize Your Business by Kevin Werbach

The best of those is easily Actionable Gamification. While it wasn’t specific to education, it did the best job relating the game mechanics to real world scenarios. Definitely check it out if you want to know more on the topic! His website is pretty fantastic too!
