I don’t spend a lot of time on all of the social media apps available, but I do use most of them at least once a day. I use my Twitter and LinkedIn accounts almost exclusively professionally – I broadcast few personal “tweets”, and everything that I put out there I feel comfortable with anyone seeing. While I keep my Facebook wall private, I do have a Facebook Page (You Can Do More!) that is open for anyone to “Like”
That being said, there are a handful of folks that I follow religiously on Twitter, LinkedIn, and various blog sites. All of these professionals deliver consistently good information and are great resources. Here are my “follow” recommendations:
Seth Godin – (Twitter @ThisIsSethsBlog – Blog – sethgodin.typepad.com ) Godin is a business and marketing guru. I read his blog daily. It is always interesting, usually thought provoking, and often is a concept that I can apply as a teacher and coach. He does have an app (Seth Godin App) that allows you to get his daily blog posts on your mobile device.
(Twitter @CoachKGrabowski -Blog – coachgrabowski.wordpress.com) Coach Grabowski is the Offensive Coordinator at Baldwin Wallace University. Although he does not post new content every day, his posts are ALWAYS useful information that can immediately be applied in your daily coaching. He is a great example of an excellent coach that embraces new technology and teaching methods. His information is “cutting edge” – he provides real life examples on how you can integrate technology as a coach and teacher. His posts on developing leadership are excellent as well.
(Twitter @EHordyskiLuong) Erin is school counselor and Rugby Coach. Her tweets are full of great resources for educators, and often include ideas on implementing technology in the classroom.
(Twitter @JasonBelzer) Jason is a sports attorney who represents coaches. He also is a writer for Forbes, and a Professor of Sports Business at Rutgers. If you want to keep up with the latest news regarding litigations in all levels of all sports, Jason is the guy.
(Twitter @TonyCourville) Coach Courville is a Football/ Strength and Conditioning coach at Teurling Catholic High School. His tweets for the athletes at his school fire me up daily!
(LinkedIn) Tony is a former head college football coach and currently the CEO at TD Enterprise. Tony shares offensive football information daily via LinkedIn.
There are many other professionals who I “follow” and often get great information from. The above recommendations deliver consistently great content.
