As I went thru this class I was constantly thinking of how I can use technology in the classroom. As a future physical education I do not see my -self using many of these tools in the actual classroom. Many of these tools require time behind the computer. In physical education I want to get the kids away from the computer and be active.
I do like the social networking site such as tweeter, blogs. This site can help me to continue to improve my lessons with new ideas. These sites are a great resource especially for new teachers. I created and started to follow other blogs. I do see myself continue to follow others for best practices in physical education. I am curious when I get to my next practicum on what technologies they use in physical education. I am guessing not much
Learning log Final Class
This was my first on line class. The class was a lot more work then I had planned for. I am sure my grade will reflect that. Even though I learned a lot from this class I still prefer the traditional classroom setting. The material was very interesting and I did enjoy the content. I learned a lot of useful information. When I become a teacher I do believe I will utilize a lot of the tools I learned about. I can see myself using twitter and blogs to help prepare for my units. I never realized just how information is out there. I am sure teacher in upcoming years will wonder how teachers taught decades ago without all the technology. One recommendation I have is do not try to take ties class with an old computer. I tried this class with a computer that is nine years old, it was very hard. This time I purchased a new computer. This class was a lot easy.
This wiki is a great resource for all web 2.0 tools. I like how this wiki categories everything. They are categories for image tools image tools, assessments tools. This is a very wiki. The link I had followed was called My Fitness Journal. Shape link is free online fitness journal. This wiki will be a great resource when you need to use web 2.0 tools. I had learned so many different tools it is hard to keep up with. This wiki breaks all the tools into descriptive categories.
This weekly post lesson plans for Physical Education. Lyn Clarkson gives examples for several defend lesson plans. She list goals objectives, outcomes. This is a great resource when planning my future lesson plans

Good reads is a social website which allows you to create library of books you enjoy. You are able to share your list with others. The benefit of this site is you are able to receive recommendations of books by other professionals. I created a list of books based on physical education and adaptive physical education. As a professional I would use this site to stay on top of any new book or resources associated with physical education. Even though Good reads may serve as great resource for some, I would not put Good reads on the top of my social media tools list I would use the site to check out resources from others. I do not see myself creating a library of my own.
