Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 7/22/11

tools2Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Time Motion – app for Ipad or Iphone; “TimeMotion takes the hassle out of time-motion studies. For sport science or coaching students, doing a time-motion study can be a real chore. TimeMotion allows you to record the activity profile of any sportsperson live during the event, or now you can analyse an existing video stored in your photo library. Use the activity categories that ship with the app or choose your own. You can even turn categories on and off as and when you need to. To save the data just take a screenshot (press the Home and Sleep buttons at the same time), or email the results via the Share button. Coaches can even use TimeMotion to track the time in possession of the ball and the frequency of possessions for their team or individual players.”
