Thing #23 Summarize Your Thoughts About This Program)

What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
I enjoyed learning about the Web 2.0 Awards List. I found some new sites that I will definitely use and recommend to my colleagues and some sites I’ve been using for a while— wufoo, flickr, Pandora, Google Earth.

There were some sites that looked interesting, but unfortunately were not functional any longer—Yourminis and

I also enjoyed learning about Photostory and exploring Big Huge Labs again.

How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
This is my second foray into 23Things. I feel that I've learned much more from the double exposure, although I have to admit that I realize that I have MUCH more to learn. I can't wait to start exploring the various applications with actual students!
I've been touting this course to my colleagues and friends, and they seem excited about taking the course this summer.

Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
Nothing really surprised me, but I am pleased with my increased confidence and knowledge using technology. I also appreciated the opportunity to read the blogs of my colleagues and learn from their own experiences.

What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?
I still believe that it would be helpful to have face-to-face opportunities for those participants new to this technology.

If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you choose to participate?

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?
