**My favorite discoveries were creating the blog and writing my responses. Also making a cartoon & podcast and using flickr to post my pictures.
**This program assisted me in having an online place to learn about current technology. My lifelong learning goal is to teach others what I have learned and experienced. I will definitely be able to do this with my staff, students, other librarians, and friends.
**The unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you were~~~At first I didn't "keep up" with my passwords and wrote my notes on scratch paper. I decided about half way through that I needed to keep a spiral binder so that I could refer back to each thing. I guess I decided to take more ownership of what I was doing. Another unexpected outcomes were discovering new things, being able to comment on them, and then being able to "brag" on myself that I knew how to do something...you know....throw out a buzz word to someone and then be able to have a conversation about it.
What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept? I can't think of anything. You gave each person a platform to share what they had discovered. Each time you wanted my thoughts on how I would use the technology in my library...Well I had to sleep on it several nights and "brainstorm with myself". Some of the Things were so totally new to me. You would probably have to add a couple of more Things if something new came along that you wanted us to know about.
If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you choose to participate?
YES...most definitely. Springbranch ISD is on the cutting edge of sharing with so many of your staff members about these priceless "technology Jewels". In my circle, most of my peers don't have a clue what a blog, wiki, etc. are. You also gave us some great ways to collaborate and organize our links. Also, new platforms for student final products.
How would you describe your learning experience in ONE WORD or in ONE SENTENCE, so we could use your words to promote 23 Things learning activities?
WOW! The 23 Things are a wonderful way to learn many new things that have been developed to communicate and develop technology.
Now go and comment on some of the other Players' blogs? I will be glad too.
