Pros and Cons of Professional Portfolio

Personal websites, Plaxo, and Linkedin are all great sites for connecting with friends, family, and professionals. It's a great tool for displaying information about yourself.

Personal Website
Pros- This site can be used as a professional webpage. You can design the website by adding your personal touch and having control of what information you want to display. You are not limited to a certain format.

Cons- Networking is not readily available.

Pros- I found the site to be user friendly. I liked that other sites could be linked to this one, for example, Twitter, Facebook etc.

Cons- I found this site to be more social.

Pros- This site can be used as a professional site for networking with professionals, looking for jobs, or to even hire someone.

Cons- I found the site to have many options, but not user friendly.

I found LibraryThing to be a great resource to keep track of the books one has read. There are many things one can do on this website. LibraryThing can be used for the following: keep track of books you would like to read, read and write reviews on books, and books are suggested for reading based on previous books read. I really think this is a great website, but I personally don't foresee myself using this due to I don't read a lot. I struggle to even sit down and read for 10 minutes, I like to go go go!!!!!!!!! I have attached the link below to my LibraryThing catalog.

Online Image Generators

I really enjoyed the online generators. My two favorite websites were The Generator Blog and Flickr Toys. On Flickrs Toys I found a couple of features I could use for class like the motivator posters and magazine covers. For certain units I could have students create posters and magazine covers pertaining to the unit they are participating in. The site I chose to post below is the Ben and Jerry's Do the World a Flavor. A person can click the website below and can create their own flavored ice cream. How fun is that!!! I love ice cream, so I could see myself getting carried away with this website. Enjoy.

Podcast Discovery....

I still cannot get over how many podcasts are out there!!!! A person can find a podcast on any topic. I liked the podcasts because I can review the podcast on my own time. I can see myself using this tool for my PE classes. I could find a podcast on weight training lifting techniques and tips for my classes to use. The possibilities are endless with this tool.


Here is a video on cat bloopers. Enjoy....
