With the rapid increase in strength and conditioning training, StackTV.com offers us an in-depth look at the greatest athlete’s in the world and their training routines, along with the top trainers in the world. It’s a great site for Physical Education teachers and coaches to gain new ideas and theories on the direction physical education and strength and conditioning is heading in.
One of the greatest learning experiences I’ve received as an athlete came to me when I was introduced to John Furia, founder of Xceleration Sports Training in Deer Park, Long Island. Xceleration has continued to stay ahead of the curve with the latest training methods for athletes of all ages, and levels of expertise. The only problem is that from a geographic standpoint, inner-city athlete’s cannot travel to this gym on a consistent basis and, in result, they will never have the opportunity to hear about or train at one of the best facilities on the east coast. I have added a link to the website, where you can get a closer look on what younger inner-city athlete’s in New York are missing out on.
So I was just fooling around with my space and getting comfortable with how things work so I posted a random highlight video from the power forward from The LA Clippers, Blake Griffin. Unfortunately it was against the Knicks but I think we still won the game.
I made this video using QuickTime for the mac book. It was pretty simple except I forgot to add the microphone in the first time. When I played it back and didn’t hear anything I was a little thrown off.
So I came across a website that seems really great for anybody who is a PE k-12 major in this class. I googled “Physical education blog posts” and found a really cool idea for applying technology to enhance physical education. I like that this person isn’t settling with the same old ideas and seems to really be pushing for new ways to keep their class interesting for their students. Apple products are so huge now and have apps that apply to just about everything, so why not try to incorporate it into class? This is also important for aspiring physical education teachers because we will have to be able to show future employers how we can apply technology to our classroom.
Recording this video and posting it on youtube was very simple. I did not use quick time or media player. Once I set up my youtube account, I clicked on “upload” and it allowed me to record a video using the camera on my macbook. When the video was done recording it only took a few seconds to finalize it, add a title, and post it on the web. I recorded a version on my Iphone as well but, uploading it didn’t go as smoothly as I thought it would. I found that using the macbook camera was very easy.
