Over the coming weeks, the NZPETeachercast is going to see a bit of a face lift. The podcast originally started as a platform to share stories from amazing health and physical educators from around New Zealand. That began to grow and we saw a number of guests from Australia, USA and the UK.
With this growth, we have seen the audience increase with it. After the addition of a video log I saw that there was the potential to create further opportunity with educators outside of teaching and the work they’re doing. I also realised that much of my development as a teacher has come from non educators. It was pretty clear that there is a fantastic opportunity to reach educators outside of the health and physical education domain by bringing guests that had greater reach across a wider variety of topics.
The podcast is going to be renamed with the Facebook page following soon after. The name of the new podcast with be the Augmented Learning Podcast & Vlog. Augmented Learning is actually the name of my company, and the company branding will be repurposed for the podcast also. To augment something is to “make (something) greater by adding to it”.
You can see the first piece of content below. Here is the new vlog intro video:
