Day 1 without my Mac

I spent the day in training, learning about standards-based instruction, assessments, and all sorts of educational goodness.

Spreadsheets have become essential tools in the last 20 years. Still, they have some limitations.

The next step will be to integrate this technology on the Web to replace the forms that we routinely fill by "websheets."

Collect GPS location data with the free Nokia Sports Tracker software

Mobile devices can be used to improve productivity and are essential for keeping you in touch with your business contacts, but you can also use them for entertainment and now for helping manage your daily fitness regime. I was checking out my RSS feeds and saw that All About Symbian posted on the new free Nokia Sports Tracker application suite. Nokia has a similar application in their 5000 Sport device and now are offering it for free to owners of the latest Nokia S60 3rd Edition devices, including most of the Nseries and Eseries models. The Nokia Sport Tracker software allows you to connect your mobile device to a GPS receiver and use it to record location-based data. Speed, distance, and time are stored automatically to your training diary and you can then export your excercise route to Google Earth. The Nokia E-series blog has more details on the application and its usage.
