The second part of our discussion with Greg Dryer explores to the role of using apps and other ways of measuring our physical activity and how they might shape how we think and feel about movement, or even how we find meaning in it.
We explore Greg’s project of developing and launching the miMove App that aims to help practitioners to support young people in developing a physical activity habit and to provide the data for schools to monitor impact, review and celebrate their work in PE.
We will explore the phenomenon of activity tracking from various angles and the ways that Greg has sought to address some of the problems that might come with it.
