I am at the Japan Institute of Sports Sciences (JISS) in Tokyo. Today I hope to meet with some coaches at the Institute to discuss their use of technology. Chikara Miyaji is my host and I am hopeful that he will help me with the translation required for the conversation with coaches.
I have prepared a SlideShare for the discussions (a copy here 100927 Coaches and Technology) and I am hopeful that my use of photographs will unlock our shared understandings about coaching an performance. I do believe that whilst there are enormous cultural differences in coaching and athlete behaviour there are some fascinating cultural universals that bind coaches and athletes together in the world of sport.
- Educational technologists
- Users of commercial technologies
- Users of free resources
- Technology developers
I am interested to learn about how coaches undertake this work at JISS and the role that people like Chikara play in support of innovation and early adoption of technologies.
