Thing #23, Week 9


Does the title really say Thing #23??? I did it, yeah me! (I feel like London from the Disney Channel show Zach and Cody, for any of you with younger children...) I knew I could do it, I just wasn't sure about fitting it into such a short time. But, alas, never underestimate the powers of a librarian!

My comments...

What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
It is easier for me to list the ones that I didn't like so much such as Rollyo and Technorati. I see the use for them, but I don't see them becoming things that I would use often in my library. But, I would love to be proven wrong.

I loved the image generators, I love my blog and look forward to turning into more of a library tool. I love wikis and see them as powerful tools for anyone who uses them.

How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
It's given me the push to tackle new things! It is so easy to become content in what we know and are comfortable with. The program made me step out of my safe zone and try new technology related tools, an area that I do need to improve.

Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
The network of people out there! I am not a social internet kind of person, so it was fun to see what other people do, create, and post on the internet via youtube or blogs.

What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?
Nothing!! It's great just the way it is... I

If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you choose to participate?
Most definitely!! Just be sure to give a deadline so that I will complete it.

How would you describe your learning experience in ONE WORD or in ONE SENTENCE, so we could use your words to promote CSLA learning activities?
Insightful. I learned so much about the internet and its tools that I never knew before! Thank you SLL2.0 Team for creating a great learning experience that makes me more effective as a teacher - all for free! You are the best!
