I have been introduced to many new technologies in this course. I tried to fight the whole Facebook and Twitter phenomenon but it is fun to see what other people are doing. I still do not see myself keeping up with either forms of technology. Although it was a great way to keep in touch with former student-athletes and athletic training students. The University of the Pacific Athletic Training Education Program has a Facebook page just for that reason. We have had a great response to it and old friends are now connected again.
I like the idea of using both blogging and podcasts for my student-athletes and athletic training students. I can post rehabs on students blog with directions and pictures of exercises if needed. Student-athletes can keep me posted with questions, comments or concerns they may have. Also, by giving SA an open forum to express their feelings, it might increase adherence to their rehab program which might produce a more positive outcome both physically and mentally.
Podcasts could allow me to give verbal instructions to both SA and ATS. Sometimes things get lost in translation in a written form of instructions. I could better explain the injury, condition and rehab to both parents, coaches and SA. Again, this can increases adherence to rehab and hopefully get SA better, faster.

  1. I was the same way, at first but I've had a FB for a while now. Never thought I'd have a twitter or blog but so far its not too bad. It's also nice to see what other people are up to.
