Comments for Teachers #3
Jarrod Robinson or Mr. Robbo is is a Physical Education teacher from country Victoria Australia. I commented on his blog post "The Video Analysis App Battle". This post was about the apps for video analysis for coaching and which are the best. He had six apps listed that the reads were to click on and vote on which were the best in a poll at the end of the post. Mr. Robbo's poll concluded that Coaches Eye was the best video analysis app. Although I do not know for sure what makes a good app, I made a go at it in my comment:
My name is Maria. I am a student in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. I am studying to be an elementary teacher. I do not know a lot about these types of apps, but I like Ubersense and Coach My Video because they are free. I like any app that is free because then students, parents, and teachers (or in this case coaches) can all have the app. I also liked the look of Coaches Eye. I liked that there were different colors for different highlighted points. Only down point about that app it was one of the more expensive.
App for Android
The second blog post I commented on from Jarrod Robinson was about an app for an android phone for PE teachers. This app was to help measure the fitness level of anyone. Although I am a newly lover of all things Mac, I am glad there is things out there for those who disagree. The blog post is titled "Fitness App for Android". My comment was this:
Maria Eschbach from Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class here again. This app is interesting. I think that it is great that this is available for those who do not have apple products. Also I think that this app will be very beneficial to PE teachers. I know that mine did a lot of guess work. So there would be no excuse now.
