Week 9 #23 - Summary - Yeah I made it!

This has been an amazing journey with lots of surprises. Now that the new school year is about to begin, I have been rejuvenated to share all this fun stuff. Our computer aide is really going to fall in love with everything. I can't wait to present the program in our first staff meeting and invite our entire staff to embark on their own journey.

What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?

My favorite discoveries were Image Generators and Flickr. I believe it is the kid in me.

How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?

It has forced me to stop and try to think outside of the box. I am sometimes a little timid when coming up with ideas for fear that they will either fail or flop.'s long as I learn something!

Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?

I did not think that the majority of these tools could be used in the elementary setting. Kids certainly couldn't handle this. Once I stepped out of the above box and put things in a child's perspective, I realized that there was something for everyone, every age. It just means a little more effort may be required.

What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?

I would have liked a blog/site that we could go to ask questions and view responses. The Team was always just an email away but I would have enjoyed reading what others were questioning. The Sandbox did have the "Water Cooler" section that is being designed. I think it will become a popular hangout.

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

Absolutely. Technology is always going to be moving forward. Weren't 45's the rage not too long ago?

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?


Irmapince - you can finally go to sleep
libladylib - thank you for "nudging" me into this

Congratulations on completing SLL2.0 and doing it before the deadline! You are now a member of the 2.0 Team. Keep in touch by posting and reading the comments on the curriculm wiki. You'll always be welcome to post words of encouragement on other blogs or meet at the water cooler to help out those who are still on this learning journey.
Your comment on 45's cracked me up as one of the newbie teachers at school thought I was referring to guns when I said somethng about those small platters last week.
Sleep? What's sleep?
Kudos to you. Have a great school year filled with web 2.0 fun.

Congratulations! Everyone thinks we are nuts because we are so excited about this stuff. I can't wait until the CSLA conference. They better reveal who Irmapince is. It is driving me crazy.
We will have to encourage each other to keep up with all this. Hopefully, CSLA will offer another tutorial. Maybe on secondlife?
We would probably be dangerous there unless they had their own island. HaHa.

Jackie S, 2.0 project manager said...

Congratulations! You have successfully completed School Library Learning 2.0 and your blog has been moved to the "Congratulations - 2.0 Team" list.

Let's all celebrate now and again at CSLA conference.

Best wishes.
