Tool #11 Self Assessing and Reflecting

From this process, I was surprised that doing a blog is not as scary as I thought. It was actually fun and I like the idea of sharing ideas with other teachers are in similar roles as just as me.

I will enjoying showing off my yearly collection of athletic injuries with animoto and creating some posters with Wordle.  I have been told the training room "torture chamber" is a bit dull.  Hopefully, using the new tools will allow me to draw more students to the sports medicine program.

There is no true application of technology for the 21st century learner in a hands on class.  Athletic Training for the students revolves around ankle taping, stretching, hands on rehab. There is no substitute for real life emergency or applications.

  1. As a student, I cannot believe that they are pulling y'all away from valuable instruction/rehabilitation time to complete this "curriculum". In this digital age, the only thing they should be doing is sending a list of links out on apps with a description of what they do.

    Waste of taxpayer money, waste of time, waste of me having to stretch some giant football player's leg because our teacher has to take a district-mandated "program."
