On his website, The Flipped Coach, Jason Hahnstadt discusses many of the ways that technology and "flipping" the classroom has assisted him in his coaching career. In his post, Google Chrome Screencasting With Snagit App, he talks about a helpful program for creating videos of your computer screen. He explains that this program is very easy to use and allows him to make videos of his computer screen so that he can use it to teach his students. After creating a video he is then able to share it with his students so that they will have the information they need for the following day of class. He also talks about how it is an effective way for coaches to share and review game film with their players. I found the fact that this app is connected to Google Drive to be a major asset. Having access to Google Drive gives the ability to easily save a video as well as a simple method of sharing.

Coaching Football

Mr. Hahnstadt writes about how iBooks and iBooks Author, are great programs with many educational uses. He begins this post by talking about a recent iBook he had viewed called 101+ Pro Style Pistol offense Plays. This iBook is a collection of offensive football plays. This is a great example of how technology is becoming more and more present in sports. He also talks about the many different features that the iBooks programs offer. Mr. Hahnstadt encourages coaches to create their own iBooks so that they are sharing their knowledge of the game, and sometimes even making a profit in the iBooks store. Finally, he talks about how accessible these books are for students through the use of their iPads. Teachers are now able to create interactive books that relay the information they are trying to teach to their students in an effective manner.
