Well, Learning 2.0 is coming to a close. In our final post we have been asked to reflect on our experiences. I have really enjoyed participating in this process and have learned so much and discovered so many useful sites and services.
How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
I have better knowledge of what I don't yet know about web 2.0 stuff. Now that I know what I don't know, I can do a better job of making an effort to learn about it. Before, I didn't know what I didn't know and that makes for a poor learning environment.
What were your favorite Learning 2.0 discoveries or exercises?
I enjoyed practicing with Flickr and its tools. I also fell a small stab of pride at having my own blog and MySpace account. I work in the SC and used to work in a branch. This process has allowed me to keep up with some of my old pals at the branch.
Did anything surprise you?
Some of the activities took longer than I expected. Sometimes, I would make a choice on activities based on how long I thought it would take.
Was there enough help available when you needed it? N/A
What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept? I don't have an answer for that right now.
Would you like to see similar training opportunities as new library-relevant technologies emerge? Definitely!
And, last one, if you could go back in time and tell yourself to either participate in the program or skip it, what would you do? I would definitely participate again. I have even shared the process with other community agencies and committees that I work with.
Lastly, we were asked to post something else that we would have liked to learn about. I would love to know how to post video. I think a section on safety on the internet would be useful.
That's it for now!
