Week 9 Thing 23 - Summary

Before I started 23 thing, I felt I knew much about the web and how to locate information and what was out there. Duh, what was I thinking. I was overwhelmed and somewhat frustrated by some of the sites. My brain is crammed with so much information. I am drawn to the photo sites like flicker and picassa but the podcasts were boring to me.

I always thought I was climbing up the hill with technology, but now I know I'm sliding down the hill backwards. So, it's time to get back up on my feet and keep learning. This learning activity was a real eye opener!!

Week 9 -Thing 20 -You Tube

I think this performance by Paul Potts was amazing! For all of you who haven't seen it it is worth while.

Week 9- Things 21,

Podcast really isn't my thing. I don't find myself using the sound broadcast. I'd rather see the visuals.

I have downloaded from our own site, Overdrive years ago. I looked at the site and will probably use it again if and when I receive the mp3 player.


Week 8- Thing 18 & 19 Online Productivity and Web 2.0 Awards

Thing 18 Google Docs
I liked the google documents. I thought is was useful. I've created a spreadsheet and entered information and it worked very well. I think this is a tool that I would use again.

Thing 19 Web 2.0 Awards
Picasa - I enjoy sites related to digital photography so I opened a Picasa account. I found it very easy to use. Sharing photos was easy. I love the screen saver with the wheel of photos in chronological order. Editing photo's was also simple.

Week 7 - Thing 16 & 17- Wiki & Sandbox

Wiki - is a great communication tool for teams and staff. We have been using Wiki's at CCPL for many years. What we have used chocolate to bribe our staff to use to post on the wiki. Anyone who wants to add to or edit topics on the wiki can do it.

I like the book lovers wiki. Very easy to use!

This is my sandbox post of my Favorite Place
