Web 2 0 Projects Pe

  1. 1. With a focus on tools for Coaches & Physical Education teachers By AJ Bacciocchi, Robby Cherry, and Alex Mincey
  2. 2.      TABLE OF CONTENT <ul><ul><li>RUNNER+  by AJ   </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Voicethread by Robby </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Google Video Conferencing by Alex </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Runner Plus <ul><ul><li>Runner+ is a web 2.0 technology for run lovers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If you create an account you can add your runs, you can read articles about running, and you can join forums regarding healthful habits, running, and ways to lose weight. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Runner+ How you set up the account <ul><ul><li>A valid email address and a password are the only requirements in order to set up and account </li></ul></ul>How to make it functional <ul><ul><li>If you want to begin adding your runs to your page, you have to hit the “CONTROL PANNEL” at the top right corner. Click then on “RUN MANAGER” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By doing so you will be able to add your first run </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If you want to show the pace, and calories you have burned with your run you will have to go to SYNCRONIZE YOUR DATA. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Benefits <ul><ul><li>If I were to coach a cross country or track team I will be able to keep track of the progress of my athletes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At the same time few interesting articles could help them prevent injuries, or help me design better programs for more successful meetings. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Frustrations or Perceived Barriers <ul><ul><li>My own page suffers becouse of the lack of equipment need it to provide better details for each individual run. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Also the people writing in the forum are not professionals, are just simple people with passion for long, short, easy runs. So a good student will be willing to ask a person with knowledge if what he just read makes sense or not. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Conclusion Runner+ is a useful web 2.0 technology for logging  your runs. This task can be easily accomplished with a normal excel spreadsheet. The problem  is the need for expensive equipment (special nike shoes + ipod) for the log to be complete(pace, and calories). I will not advise using runner plus unless the runner already possessed the extra equipment
  8. 8. Voicethread Voicethread is a web 2.0 technology incorporating broad visual and audio techniques, taking communication to the next level. Right now Voicethread averages about 36,000 visitors per month.
  9. 9. Getting started with Voicethread <ul><ul><li>Go to Voicethread.com </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Click Register in the Upper Right Corner of the front page. You will need to input a valid webmail address and a password. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Click on the tag under your name to add a profile picture and description </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Watch the tutorials, create voicethreads, browse through others voicethreads, or respond to other voicethreads. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. What makes Voicethread so great <ul><ul><li>You can communicate with students or athletes in a very interactive way. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Upload an image or video file and then ask a question, tell a story, or make a demonstration using the doodling tool. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An Example of this for athletics may be: Have game footage from a football game as the voicethread background. Then demonstrate good and bad behavior on the play, using a doodling tool and your own voice. </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Frusturations with Voicethread <ul><ul><li>The free version has a limited amount of voicethreads per user account. However, if you are using it for school purposes you can get a deal, especially if a large group wants to use it (but it will still cost you money if you want to use it often). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The voice feeds play one at a time and cannot overlap. This is probably a good thing because it keeps people from overlapping, but makes for slower communication in general. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Voicethread Closing Thoughts <ul><ul><li>I love Voicethread. The possibilities with this technology are so broad. I highly suggest any one in the education field to try it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I have seen voicethreads used in Foreign Language, Science, Labs, Math, History, Art History, Geography, Social Studies (Pen Pals) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I have also thought of uses for Voicethread in Athletics (as seen in a previous slide) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The one main deterrent for using Voicethread is that using it often will cost money. </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Google      Video Conferencing
  14. 14. Video Conferencing <ul><ul><li>Usually thought of as being used for business meetings. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  People in suits sitting around a table: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>  looking at a screen </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>  conducting a conference of high importance </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 15. History of Video Conferencing <ul><li>Back in the day if you wanted to talk to someone through the internet you would have to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Buy a web cam </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find software that would allow you to talk through your computer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Buy and hook-up speakers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find website that supports this </li></ul></ul>
