Thing 23

My absolute favorite discovery on this journey was Shelfari! Though I have to admit, I don't see how I can use it very well in the elementary setting (especially because I will be teaching 1st grade next year), but I'm using it for myself as a social network.

This program has jumped-started one of my professional learning goals, which is to stay abreast of current technology. I mean, I only graduated high school in 2001, but I feel as if I'm far behind my fourth graders!

One outcome from this program that thoroughly surprised is my excitement for RSS feeds. I used to log onto GMail once every two weeks or so, but now its a daily occurrence.

All I can think of to suggest for improvement is to go through the Things every few months and make sure that the links are still working. Also, take Ning off the list because it will no longer free.

I would love to participate in another discovery program!

My learning experience these past few months has been more than I could have asked for!
