I look at many tools but the one that caught my attention the most is the Gnumeric. This was easy to understand and it works on a spreadsheet which I really like. It is very organized which makes it easy to follow. Also I like how it can save with other files to make it easy to find. In the sports world you are always keeping stats so this would work great keeping organized and being able to follow the stats that are being put into the sprre
As I look up the words "Network Strategies" this definition pops up. After reading it I thought this is very true to enhance your approach on a program.
" A collaborative approach to program delivery based upon: 1) focus on the common vision, not the individual organizations within the network; 2) confidence that individual organizations can be relied upon to do what they say they’ll do and have the networks’ best interest in"
There are numerous ways to be successful in life and in your profession but it how you create them determines your outcome. For example if you hurt yourself you are determine to come back as good as you were or even better. That is how the networking is as well. You look for people that have the some common interest and drive that you do to make your network succeed. Also networking does not just have to be on the internet it can be in person, by mail, or even by flyers you have to put yourself out there to get what you want in return. Most people relay on internet because that is what we are starting to turn to grow are network. For me in person works best and spreads faster because that how it always is people are always talking. I have that kind of personality so it does not bother me to walk up to someone and put myself out there.
Wikis can be very helpful for some people. I like to look up things in Wikis so I can have a better understanding on what ever I might be looking up. It breaks it down into turns that can be easily understood. Wikis can also give you some information that you may not be aware of when you research. On the flip side of that Wikis can be just about people opinions since you can edit it some people just give their on opinion. That means you can not believe everything you read on Wikis because some of it can be false or opinion. I am always sketch about Wikis and do not quote it because I am not sure where exactly it came from. In life there is always a positive and a negative and that is how mostly everything is.
For my LinkedIn was little confusing to me more than Facebook. Facebook I feel like is more to connect with friends and family around the world. When I think of Facebook I think of personal more than professional. When I set up an account for LinkedIn it felt more like a professional website to me. LinkedIn will be good to connect with other professionals in my field and to help me better my education. For Facebook it is more of fun and to connect with your friends and find out events that are happening in peoples lives.
I enjoy the Amazing Teacher and Educational IPad Apps for Educator. As a coach you are also a teacher as well. I like the teacher's assistant Pro because it can help my assistants coaches as well as myself. Few practices I will not be in attendance with this app my assistant can track the teams behaviors so when or if I do not play them we will have documentation why and I can also send it to their parents. I also like the 60 Education App in 60 Minutes. This article really broke down a lot of apps for me. I like the Genius Scan and JotNot app because as a coach I can scan my white board drawings and send it to other coaches for input. I also can send it to my assistant so we will always be on the same page. Also it will great when you go to scout another team because you can scan your notes and send them to all the coaches so you will not lose any papers. Also you will all be on the same page because you have them at the palm of your hands. Therefore, you will always be prepared if you play them at a later time it will show up so you can go back to your notes and be ready for the game.
The app that I came across was called TeamSnap. TeamSnap is a management app that also communicates with the team on a day to day basics. I like this app because it keeps my organized and keeps my team informed. I will remind you of upcoming games, maps to the event, and practices so everyone will be on the same page. This app can help coaches be more organized and keep their team accountable. The technology keeps changing everyday and I am excited to see the new app to help me become a better coach.
The top 100 list was very surprising to me. I have not heard of a lot of learning tools till this class. I was very surprised to see that Pinterest was rank high. I thought it would make the list but did not expect it to be that high. I like Pinterest because it is a great way to be create and cheap at the same time. I used Pinterest to make goodies for the team I coach. I thought it was interesting that I do not use many of the tools but after looking at them I am started to look into them to get the full use out of the internet.
I never heard of Web 2.0 and what I learned that consumers can share information to each other. I thought that is how it was all the time. Although after reading the articles I was incorrect about that. I like how we can look up anything and see their reviews. I like to check out everywhere I go so looking up the reviews really helps me out because I already know what I getting myself into. I also watch the video and it Web 1.0 slower and you can only send to few one person. Than when the Web 2.0 came along it was faster and also you could share it numerous people and across the world. I thought that interesting and I had no idea that there was a difference. Now I am fully aware and I am slowing looking into Web 2.0 and I discover something new each time. I look forward to learning new about Web 2.0.
I went exploring on the pages I really like the 30 boxes it keeps me organize and with the crazy lifestyle that I live in I need to be as organized as possible. Also I think this can help people be organized and stay on track with their life. I also like the todolist this helps me on an everyday basics because you can type in things and it will remind you. When you are going 100 miles per hour you always out to forget something. So I like this productive tools that keep my life and
