This maybe the last “Thing” in 23 Things but it is only the beginning of my learning experience with new technologies and tools. I plan on going back and spend more time learning about more of the tools that 23 Things has shown me.
This was such a great learning experience for me. I knew about some of the things out there but I never thought I would be using them. I could never see myself with a blog or on Twitter, and now I have both. The learning experience was so much fun because we all did it together. We helped each other and that made us all a little closer. I think it gave all of us confidence.
One of my favorite things was YouTube. For quite some time I have watched YouTube videos that were on my Facebook and different ones that were emailed to me by friends and family. I never thought in a million years I would make a video, and post it on YouTube. It was so much fun making it with all my co-workers. We laughed so much doing this one, and also learned so much at the same time.
My least favorite was the Twitter. I did open an account but I know I will never post anything on it. I really don’t like to post my thoughts for everyone to see. Even on my Facebook I don’t tell everyone what I am doing or going etc. I may go and see what other people are posting on Twitter, but I will not post on it.
I know I will keep using Facebook, Flickr, the Google reader and YouTube. I hope I continue to keep up with my blog also.
As far as the lifelong learning goals it has help me with my confidence as a competent effective learner. I would have never attempted to do some of the 23 things on my own but with determination and the help of others I did complete it. Since I have completed it I have more confidence in myself with using new technology.
I really want to go back and play with some other image generators, and I also want to keep up with Google reader especially the craft feeds.
This is how I would describe my experience with 23 Things. A fun experience that at times was hard but it paid off in the end.
I would love to participate in another program. I’m always up for learning new things.
If we do another program I would recommend spending more time on each thing. I know it would have been helpful with some of the harder things. I’m sure there was a time frame that needed to be met, and I know that we couldn’t have stayed on each thing for ever.
I really want to thank Lauren and Amy for doing this. I had a great time and learned so many fun things. Hope you guys can do some like this again. Thanks so much.
