As far as following anyone, I use Twitter to keep up with updates on a daily bases. Usually I just like to look at the injurypicpage, to look at injuries other athletes suffer. But as far as information is concerned I follow NATA, Brain Injury Assn, TSSAA, Am J Sports Med, AOSSM, ATSHC Journal, SEATA, NATA Foundation, Concussion Wise, and CNN Health to name a few.
The internet helps me learn when I am willing to learn. When I am just trying to pass time then obviously I am not paying close enough attention to actually learn anything. Good learning to me is reading journal articles. Bad learning is reading to news, usually they only provide half of the information.
I like technology and learning. Obviously this online degree program is great!!! I live in Tennessee but yet I am able to earn a Masters Degree without ever stepping foot in a classroom. I do feel that the online atmosphere makes learning less personal. Not necessarily between the teacher and students but between the students themselves. In a classroom we see each other every day and make friendships over the course of a semester. However, online friendships aren't usually made due to the lack of weekly in person interaction.
