My own page suffers becouse of the lack of equipment need it to provide better details for each individual run.
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.
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
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.
You can communicate with students or athletes in a very interactive way.
Upload an image or video file and then ask a question, tell a story, or make a demonstration using the doodling tool.
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.
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).
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.
Video conferencing can be used in a variety of settings.
Video chatting is a fun, easy way to stay in contact with family and friends.
Video conferencing is free for anyone with a gmail account.
CONCLUSION The Internet is becoming more and more prevalent in people's life; for this reason schools should be ready to teach all students the best way to use the web. The three web 2.0 technologies describerd earlier are just few ones that can help a person in several aspects of his/her life. From logging the miles run during a week, to keeping up with friends in other parts of the world.
