I familiarized myself with the project (Thing #1) and discovered pointers from lifelong learners (Thing #2) The online tutorials and podcasts are a nice change of pace from reading. Although I created my first blog about 3 months ago, over the Thanksgiving holiday, it is a great idea to use a blog to write about 2.0 web applications and experiences as I go through the SJLearning2.0 program. My new blog is called "2CoolTools" because web 2.0 applications are really wonderful and cool = hot! (Thing 3)
A Look-back" from WEEK 9: For the past two weeks, I've been modifying Learning2.0 for school libraries. This has presented a number of interesting challenges, such as figuring out how to post the full 1-23 exercises.
HOW TO MAKE ALL 23 THINGS (9 weeks) flow as one post.
- FIRST: Create and finalize all 23 individual posts, posts for "about," _Participants," etc.
- SECOND: When satisfied with final product, do the following:
CREATE a LAST POST called "Exercises."
Open a separate browser and COPY 1 of 23 Things; PASTE to "Exercises" post.
Then, COPY 2 of 23 Things; PASTE to "Exersises" post. And so on until all 23 are in one final post.
- LAST: Tell school librarians to sign up and get going!
It is a real kick when each problem is solved. Once you learn 2.0, you start really using it.
