  1. Hello my name is Jamie I am a student at the University of South Alabama and im in EDM310 class, which is for students who want to become teachers. It helps students become familiar with using technology. I enjoyed your post very much. I coach high school softball and will be using the Swipestats app to keep up with my players statistical information. I will also be posting a review of this post on my blog at [email protected].

  2. Thank you from a relatively new PE teacher. I have been wanting to incorporate some new things into my classes as well as have a tool that I can use for evaluation and assessment that does not require me to remember the actions of approximately 90 children in the course of 2 hours. I have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy reading the info you post!!!
