3 Different Portfolio Websites

Were searched 3 portfolio webpages: Google.sites, Plaxco, and Linkedin

Google- You were able to create a portfolio from scratch and did not have the same as someone else.
Plaxco- You were given everything that you need to fill out and you fill in the blank. There was not to much information needed. Simple.
Linkedin- It was easy to follow and you were given only a little information that would get you started ad then you could fill in whatever you needed after. Long, but simple.

Google- TIME, TIME and MORE TIME. There was to much information need to do, you had to create things from scratch. Way to long.
Plaxco- You start out with the same layout as everyone else.
Linkedin- There is way to many areas to feel in.

They were all interesting but I would have to say my favorite is Google. Google was great because I got to create my portfolio from scratch. I did mind the time issue, but realized the time issue is only a one time thing so it is not that bad.

Library Thing...

I got onto the Library Thing website and the website was pretty interesting. I liked the book selections and it made me remember all the books, I was forced to read as a kid. I was having flash backs. Man that was not long ago. I enjoyed searching for books. I negative things were, I could not find an advanced search so that I could narrow my search by year, or something like that. Then when you posted to your library you have to start from the first page and go all the way through to page 10. That was frustrating most of all.

My edited picture...

I hope that you like my picture. Some people say that I look like an Alien because I have such a huge head.

gotta love sundays

Doing some homework and hanging out with my girlfriend...we're tired and need to sleep...soon!

Tuesday, June 2, 2009 is interesting.

I am intrigued about This sight has nothing but podcast's and some have large amounts of things you can listen too. I found many different things regarding fitness, nutrition, weight training, physical education and much more. The sight itself is very interesting. I had a nice time playing with it for about 10 minutes. I think that I might be able to have my students listen to many different podcast (regarding: PE, weight training and fitness) and have them write a paper on what they learned.

Youtube is great.

I have been a huge fan of Youtube since I fell upon the site 2 years ago. Youtube is a great website to post videos you want people to see. You can gain so much popularity on the web if you are able to create a video that is viewed by millions of people. The site is easy to search and you do not have to download anything to view the movies. Categories are helpful to seperate videos and allow you to find what you are looking for quickly. Youtube is something that PE teachers can use in the classroom because you can pull up weight training and fitness exercises on Youtube to give your students a perfect look at how to perform an exercise correctly (Some videos way not be the best so make sure to view the videos before showing your students).

Technorati is an okay website.

Technoati is a great website because it keeps tract of blogs, photos, video, and tags that are considered “public view.” The one thing that I am surprised about are the amount of things being traced. I mean, wow everything that is set up for public view is on this website. You can really search for anything: Kinesiology, weight training, stretches, and even weight training bloopers. I was surprised how many people posted about weight training bloopers they had. Some of the videos were pretty funny.

I enjoyed the fact that you can search for videos, photos, posts or blogs separately. You did not have to separate photos from videos or blogs from posts, they were all separated by the website. Very convenient.

Delicious is amazing!!

I really did not understand what the Delicious website was going to be about, but now that I do, I am ecstatic about the website. Delicious is great!!! It allows me to bring all the websites I normally get on and put them in one place. I know longer have to type twitter, facebook, blogger, blogline,, and much more. I no longer have to bounce from site to site. Delicious allows all of my web pages to be put in one place. Man, Delicious is great.

This is how I dance 1!!

Just finished up a really busy day. Didn't have much of a dinner, unless you count ice cream and popcorn. I was too lazy to cook or get something at the drive thru. I'm dead beat and I'm ready to go to bed.

Long drive home...

Once again I'm preparing myself for a long drive back to Ridgecrest.   Its been an eventful weekend.  I attended my best friends birthday was crazy fun.  Now I'm back to being all about work.  I may stop by a gas station or a drive thru to get me something to eat and drink for the road.  Probably a soda to keep me awake! Can't wait till next weekend!

New Technologies Explored

I have found that the new technolgies being explored in this class are going to be very helpful. I am having a great time using many of them. Twitter is a great way to legally stock someone. Blogger is something that allows you to get straight to the point, short and sweet. Podcasting is a great tool that allows a person to send personal greatings without having to be face to face. Podcasting also allows teachers a chance to create class lectures without haveing to be in class. Teachers are capable of lecturing and allowing children to download it on their ipods and mp3's. Its great for students who can not focus in class.

Google Doc

"Google Doc" is great, it allows you to Microsoft Office things with out being on microsoft. Man that is going to make a large amount of people happy because now they do not have to buy the software. Just use Google Doc. Its CHEAP, and CHEAP is always good. More so today with our bad economy.


Bloglines are great ideas and I am really glad that I have learned about this program. The program allows me to take many different blog sites and combined them into one place. This great because I was hopping from website to website to get all my information. Now sports, science and class things are all on one site. Man that is great.

Article 3 KIN 710

Article 3: The history of Go: Why I tech with ipods

I really enjoyed this article because Ipods are something that almost every student has or wants to have. We as teachers need to stop fighting the ipod genereation and find ways to apply ipods in the calssroom. Here are some interesting things:

  • Lets face it, iPods are eveywhere. Students are getting there hands on them and using them to their advantage. Cheating and storing information are on their top priority lists.
  • The article talked about how students can use iPods as a private tutor. They can put things on the ipod that will help them when a teacher is not around.
  • Ipods are more convient for students then text books. The article made me feel like it wanted to make the comment, "Ipods can store whole text books. They will eventually eliminate text books."
  • Ipods can be a great way for teachers to gain feed back on assignments by the students recording there answers/feedback.

Article 2: KIN 710

Article 2: Using podcasting as audio learning objects.

This article was really interesting, I enjoyed reading it. Some of the most important things I read were:

  • Podcasting can be a great tool for teachers in the classroom.
  • Conversations can be record in the classroom during class prodjects.
  • Lectures can be pre-recorded or record on demand in the classroom.
  • The ablility to record the lectures gives the teachers an oppurtunity to have learning taking place outside the classroom or at home.

Article 1: KIN 710

Article 1: Emerging technology changing public library service.

This article was kind of interesting, some of the most interesting things that I read was:

  • Podcasting is being used in Library's.
  • There are over 22 million iPods and Mp3's in the world today.
  • The article talked about how ipods and mp3 players can be used as a tool to help people learn.
  • They can be used as training tools, databases and online library resourses.
  • Ipods and mp3 players can be used as weekly updates for people.
  • They can also be a great tool for presentations.

New Technology.

Some new technology that has interested me this week is called and External Hardrive. I new about the external hardrives but what I did not know was that they came in Terabits, which translated means 1000GB's. Man that is a large amount of imformation to store. I am going to get me one soon, very soon. Is that to much storage? Should I go bigger? What do you think?
