The paper offers a future practice of hope, whereby all stakeholders investing; develop collective holistic agency. It addresses current linear media driven misconceptions and recognises how educators moved from ‘little grey boxes’, to teaching through student-centred, sense making activities, developing digital fluency and collaborate activities. It explores how embodied reflections were undertaken via active blended learning, using a variety of planned and emergent affordances; photography, video, and apps to increase social connectedness as well as personal accountability of learning. These interactions developed, constructed, reflected on and critiqued knowledge, to ensure the next generation of physical education teachers have the awareness to extend confidence and competence.
