This chapter considers school physical education, pedagogical strategies, and the role of social media in supporting young people’s learning about health. I consider what can be learned from the case studies (Chapters 2–7), the wider research literature, and some of the implications for pedagogical strategies and teachers’ professional learning. I conclude that physical educators can contribute to young people’s critical health literacy, develop pedagogies of affect, and deploy social media forms and contents in critical and positive ways. This work will be challenging in the face of the pervasive influence of social media in young people’s lives.
