This site is based on the idea that Physical Education (PE) is a terrific way in which students can develop as whole individuals. We hope to provide a place where teachers, parents, and students can come together to make physical education a more valuable experience. By sharing from our respective perspectives, we can make PE better, and help to make movement a more natural part of our everyday lives. In addition, we can better use the potential that PE has to ediphy, to encourage intellectual, moral, or spiritual improvement in all of us!
EdiPHy was created in cooperation with faculty and staff at the University of WI-Madison and Madison area Physical Education teachers over the course of three years. A generous grant from the estate of Virginia Horne Henry made it possible. Many thanks go to the donors and participants.
