The internet has impacted my personal learning because information is found much more quickly. With the Iphone, IPAD, laptops, and PC's giving me access immediately I can find answers and get access to multiple resources in a short amount of time.
The site that I use most to find information is Google. I will start with a search on the Google site and then from the generated list of web sites I will choose which web site looks most reliable to do my research.
There are not currently authors or sites that I follow, but if I find a web site that I am going to use often, like California Standards for PE, I will bookmark it so I can easily return to the site when necessary.
I use YouTube often for video clips of sports we are playing so I can show students how to perform skills and activities correctly, and I also use the internet to research rules for the sports we are playing. The internet can definitely be a distraction at times because I will get curious about my Facebook or my fantasy sports teams and I will go to those sites sometimes instead of getting work completed.
I feel technology must be updated in our schools so we can use it as the main resource and tool for learning. Students are living in a technological world at home and away from homes via their phones, but students are getting bored at school because too many teachers are using old school methods to teach. We have to use technology as a way to connect to our students, so instead of telling our students to put away their cell phones during class let's find ways to use it!
