Google Professional Portfolio Site

Here is the link to my first google site.  It is a work in progress.  It will be very useful in the future.  I appreciate the youtube tutorials that help set it up. 

LinkedIn and Plaxo

I like using LinkedIn and Plaxo. It is very useful especially if you have to communicate with a large group, like this class (Kin 710). I like that I can add all my information and contacts in one site. All my contacts just showed up from different sites and then I clicked upload.  Also, I liked that Plaxo connected all of my contacts on facebook.  Both of these sites make social networking much more efficient.

I found this site to have information on every subject, except kinesiology.  Fitness had information and coaching had information so it is a useful site.  It is amazing to me that there are so many different sites to find information on any subject of interest.  I was hoping to find some useful information on kinesiology.  Lucky for me there are many other options.

Library Thing

Just checked out Library Thing.  It was interesting to see all the books that are available.  I found books on many different topics that interest me.  I can see this site be very useful in the future.  I found a new book from Coach K from Duke University and other books about coaching that interest me.  Attached is the link to my site on Library Thing.  On my site are other books that I found.


A motivational podcast for lifelong fitness, which I will try to inspire students to want for themselves.

As a teacher, I have used youtube many times.  It is amazing what you can find.  It has old films, student projects, old radio shows, speeches from past Presidents, and clips from all over the world.  It is extremely useful in my job as a Social Studies Teacher.  I look forward to seeing how to use it for my own instructional purposes.

The delicious website is something that I will use in the future.  The advantages of it are that you can work with it from anywhere on any computer.  The ability to access your favorite sites or find new ones and save them is very convenient.  Another positive aspect is the possibility of accessing other people's bookmarks that are interesting.  As an educator, the must read bookmark options will give students access to the information they need.  Overall, this is a very useful site. Check it out!
