Technology use among older adults has been increasing in tandem with the general trend of increasing technology use among the general population. Compared to 2012, when 53% of older adults reported using the Internet, 59% of those aged 65 years and older in the United States now use it ( Pew

One would have to have been living under a rock, or perhaps on a remote island, to not see the accelerated deployment of digital technologies in our everyday lives. Given this, it is hardly shocking that digital technologies have come to influence the institutionalized structures in our society

Due to the growth of technology’s role in education, today’s teachers face challenges to meet the unique needs of students who have never thought about life without the internet, computers, or cellular phones ( Krause, Franks, & Lynch, 2017 ). In response to this issue, educational organizations

implementation of a new model outside of face-to-face assessment and therapy that is tailored to the unique risks and circumstances (e.g., frequent travels, elevated stigma, sport-specific risk factors) of athletes with EDs is needed. Technology is a potential solution for overcoming and addressing this problem

-in-ear technology, or two-way radios, can be used to increase distance while maintaining direct supervision and communication. Educational reform over the past 20 years has led to changes in the supervision of athletic training students, from allowing students to provide patient care without the presence of a

professional schools. For example, in their review, Kusnoor and Falik ( 2013 ) refer to cheating in medical school as the “unacknowledged ailment” (p. 479), with estimates of the prevalence of cheating by students in medical schools as high as 58%. Advances in technology and the growth in online course

The second purpose of this study was to determine if runners could be clustered into separate

advances in technology, less expensive, more portable, and user-friendly devices have become available. Although the validity of these devices has been examined in a variety of adult populations and contexts ( Clark, Mentiplay, Pua, & Bower, 2018 ), there are important issues to consider when using

Global positioning system (GPS) technology was made possible after the invention of the atomic clock. The first suggestion that GPS could be used to assess the physical activity of humans followed some 40 y later. There was a rapid uptake of GPS technology, with the literature concentrating on validation studies and the measurement of steady-state movement. The first attempts were made to validate GPS for field sport applications in 2006. While GPS has been validated for applications for team sports, some doubts continue to exist on the appropriateness of GPS for measuring short high-velocity movements. Thus, GPS has been applied extensively in Australian football, cricket, hockey, rugby union and league, and soccer. There is extensive information on the activity profile of athletes from field sports in the literature stemming from GPS, and this includes total distance covered by players and distance in velocity bands. Global positioning systems have also been applied to detect fatigue in matches, identify periods of most intense play, different activity profiles by position, competition level, and sport. More recent research has integrated GPS data with the physical capacity or fitness test score of athletes, game-specific tasks, or tactical or strategic information. The future of GPS analysis will involve further miniaturization of devices, longer battery life, and integration of other inertial sensor data to more effectively quantify the effort of athletes.
