Well, Let's just say almost everything that we have been learning in this class has been pretty new to me. However, one exciting new piece of technology that I have found interesting so far is the use of audacity. Audacity is a audio program in which you can create mp3 files with. I particularly have an interest in this due to my line of work with coach. I feel through this program I can put together a podcast for my athletes to listen, so that they have an understanding of the daily practice. I have always wanted to incorporate technology into my practices and I feel that this will be one that I will use outside of this class. It is a simple program, that can be understood quickly, thus making it an important tool to use, due to the simplicity of it.
I am Mike Pellet and I am from NY, just north of NYC, in a small suburb. I am currently a Collegiate Track and Field Coach. Aside from that I have taught 6 years of physical education with 5 of them in the NYC Public Schools.
I look to get a lot out of this class as I am not up on the technology side of things, so it should be a learning experience, which I look to enjoy. With the Masters Degree at FPU in Kinesiology, I look to better myself in my teaching as well as coaching experiences.
On my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, camping and fishing, as well as brewing my own beer.
