Google Docs

WOW! Yet another new way to use technology to our advantage. While going through the google docs assignment, I learned a lot. The two things that really stood out for me and how I can use this in the future was the fact that I can use it as a teacher or at work, doing what I do. Google docs could definitely be useful at work and in a school setting. For work purposes, it would be nice to share documents and only allowing certain people to edit or even view it. Its also a good way to collaborate on a project or paper.
Lastly, I really liked the fact that I could create a virtual classroom, where I can post announcements, pictures, and much more. As I learned about that, I started to think about how I manage my current swim team of 50 swimmers. It would be nice to keep in contact with papers through that kind of site.
Overall my experience on google docs was eye opening and something I plan to use in the near future.

RSS and feeds

At first, I was kind of nervous to use all these new tech-y things but so far it hasn't been too bad.
I never thought I'd be using RSS (I didn't even know what "RSS" was until this assignment). Same goes for the "feeds" that I signed up for. However I do think I'll enjoy this and use the quicker way of seeing all the news feeds instead of going page to page like I used to. This will also allow me to keep up with everything going on and it will definitely help me out with cutting down on time wasted.

Twitter, blogs and podcasts

I've done some things over the past week, I never thought I'd do. I have a twitter account and a blog -WOW! I also just recorded my first podcast! Yay me! Can't wait to see what else I learn how to do.

Never thought I'd have a twitter account, blog or flickr. But now I have all 3...very interesting...

Grad School

Week 2 of grad school. Super excited about working on my masters and continuing my education. I'm learning more about my time management skills and how to get the most outta 24hours. Can't there be more hours in a day?
Well my original blog was about how my first week of school was going to be my first and last time doing all my work at the end of the week, but as I sit here in week 2, I'm learning that the weekend might be my only time to do school work. With 12 hour work days, 6 times a week...I have to make a change somewhere or I'll never make it.
