statistical analysis is used very broadly in a very wide variety of areas of society. Today statistical analysis is used in universities across the globe. Research is conducted from cardiac rehab (my career focus) and the most common cardiovascular diseases in today's day and age to the stats that are compiled in pro sports according to the ASA on http://www.amstat.org/sections/sis/. Statistics are what really make up sports and the motives for why we watch them. Wins and losses, number of championships, how many points a specific player scored and even betting in sports (odds on a game) have to do with stats. stats help understand the games we play better and if the odds in a certain situation are in our favor or not. Statistics, like previously stated also help us get a picture on relevant issues in today's world and probable causes or solutions to the problems we face.
Pros: Time effective and professional way to get your professional information out into the world and with other professionals in the same field as you.
Cons: It offers a rather limited view of you depending on how much you decide to add to your profile whether it'd be by choice or because of limited information/resources ( limited experience, skills etc.).
Pros: Employers and other professionals get a good idea of who you are, what your likes are and basic knowledge of your skills and education.
Cons: It's a double edged sword that can either represent you well or it can give off the wrong impression depending on what you decide to post on your Facebook as well as giving a very brief and limited account into your professional life.
Pros: you can tailor it to your likes and preferences showing a balance between professional and social life with a touch of your personality. You can link social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter etc
Cons: It may not be brief or easy to navigate, discouraging employers from using it to get to know you. It also might be missing important information and lack direction, in terms of what it presents, if not well thought out before hand.
A Personal Web Presence (PWP) is useful especially when trying to enhance yourself and your career professionally. Certain social media tools like twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pearl Tree, etc. help you show your strengths and talents with those in the same career field as you. Websites like Facebook, Twitter, etc. are very popular and depending on the type of career/business you have you can also build clientele that way as well. So far on this site I have links to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Pearl Tree. All of these sites help me in different ways and some also overlap (Facebook and LinkedIn). Twitter allows me to stay in touch with news of professionals who I'm following. Pearl Tree helps me to organize websites that I use in different categories that way I visit only one site instead of having to visit multiple websites throughout the day. Some of these websites we already use for social purposes but we can also use them professionally to our advantage to develop our career.
Wiki websites are websites that have several authors working in collaboration with one another on the site. These websites can be authored with several individuals in collaboration and usually there is no need for log-in or password entry. In today's day and age, wikis serve education in a number of ways. Today collective work is very scarce and possessive individualism makes it hard to use others' works without financial compensation. Wiki pages offer a change from that and usually make learning easy for the teacher and student. Wiki pages are user friendly for those wishing to set up a page for teaching purposes (Blackboard and Moodle are examples) and it's also easy for students to use and offer input on assignments and discussions. Numerous authors generally also improve the quality of the content however one must be aware of the validity and reliability of the information presented (especially in terms of academic purposes) because the information can be subjective to the authors' bias, lack of sufficient information, assumptions and other variables that can affect the integrity of the information presented and cannot be taken as total truth.
Great places to start professional networks are Facebook and LinkedIn. These sites allow you to present yourself in a professional way to those who come across your profiles. These sites also allow you to display key attributes about yourself in just a glance. Things like education, experience, employment as well as strengths and interests can be displayed for others to see from just glancing at your profiles. Due to this you should try to present yourself in the most respectful and professional way.
There is also several ways to expand your network. Network workshops are great to get pointers on how to present yourself better as well as to meet people and make connections with professionals in your respective field. Once you have made valuable connections and aquiantances stay in touch and cultivate those relationships. Always portray yourself in the best possible manner through your profile, make people want to get to know you by your personality and skills. Hopefully these tips will help you not only to establish a professional network but also to expand it, which in turn help your respective field and career.
After making a profile in LinkedIn I could tell there's a big difference between LinkedIn and Facebook. Facebook is geared more for social recreation as opposed to LinkedIn which is more for your professional career. LinkedIn is only interested in getting your work experience, education, professional acquaintances and special skills/interests. On the other hand Facebook asks you some of the same things (place of employment, education, etc.) but it's also interested in who your friends are, what you're thinking, what recreational things you have done lately and collecting your pictures of your activities. When going out in the real world LinkedIn would be a better representation of yourself when getting employed rather than Facebook. It just represents you in a more professional manner.
After going on the app store and searching in depth, it seems that there are apps for almost everything and anyone. I think that having a large inventory to choose from is good especially when you are looking for apps that might help you in your career. Apps are also great in the form that they are added to mobile devices and tablets and can be taken anywhere. This facilitates teaching and getting things done when you are away from home and away from your computer. Essentially, you can carry these apps in your pocket wherever you go. However there is one down fall that I noticed after looking at certain apps. Apps are a way of business after all, so there is a price to obtain them. Some are free but usually they're either not very good or you can only try out a restricted version until you decide to buy the complete version. Some apps on here, are pretty pricey. I saw one on anatomy that seemed well developed but it costed about 25 dollars. So people don't have a way of knowing exactly if the app they purchased will be of use how they intend it to be other than other user reviews.
