Thing #23: Summarize Your Thoughts

  1. What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
I enjoyed playing with PhotoStory, Rollyo, Wikis, online image generators, and mashups.
  1. How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
This program has helped me to realize that I am capable of learning about and actually using cool programs and tools of the internet for my personal life and for my professional life as a teacher.
  1. Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
I did not expect to want to bring blogs into my classroom, but I am determined to bring more technology into my language arts class. Students will have tons of fun and probably not even realize how hard they are working!
  1. What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?
I really can't think of much; you guys did a great job providing us with videos and other web resources to explain each thing. I especially loved the videos from the Common Craft guys!
  1. If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you choose to participate?
Yes, I would probably participate. I enjoyed the fact that I could work on this program from home over the summer, even after having a baby!
  1. 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?
I explored 23 "things," but I left with a million ideas to use in my classroom!
