TASK 23 Is this really the end? Or just the beginning....

What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?

* Setting up a Blog that would have an guaranteed "audience " !
* Creating my "The Library Thing "
* Reading and reflecting upon the articles about Library 2.0
* Web 2.0 tools

How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
* Clarified how my learning style adapts and crosses over from being the "student" on campus to professional development in the workplace . And as this workplace really is quite a new environment for me it made the journey even fresher.

Were there any take-aways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?

* I really like my avatar it is cute!
* Not really a surprise I guess , but having this opportunity for a directed learning experience I went to Internet tracks that I haven't been to before!

What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?

* Having Robyn Dennis remould it to our QLD. TAFE workplace made it a seamless interface that was relevant to us , it was great. Thank you !

And last but not least…

If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you again chose to participate?

Yes , but I really should revisit my ICDL first .

Task 22 Communities

Just conducting a search to see what groups appeared under the Vocational and training on the Edna site was extensive and interesting. Clearly illustrates the existence of networks . I added a post to Tanya Mohr's 23 Things thread .

To answer the specific questions:

Did you find it difficult to join an online community?

Once I'd linked to the site from the weekly task page it was simply a matter of copy and paste the key into the box, and I do admit to doing an extra lap to set up my registration to enable me to leave my reply.

I have disabled my facebook re the comment i left as I did not enjoy viewing a strange man's personal bits every time i opened the page.

I have uploaded tons of personal photos on Myspace account previous to this excercise. The new LIVE system has made the process even easier.

Can you see a use for this at your workplace?

Another good way to draw workplace teams together for shared projects like this one has been. Offers a good forum to voice our experiences.

Task 21 Podcast Directories

I found the book review show on

Radio Sausalito's Check It Out

When i searched for Australian Library podcasts there weren't any results given here.

I haven't added the rss feed to my blog yet as I needed to go to google reader help centre and am about to they say I shall keep you posted!!

Task 20 blog about Mr Bean in the Library

How easy was that...and I am a big fan of Rowan Atkinson. Did prefer him as Black Adder. My husband was on a Qantas flight with him years ago when there was only one screen for the inflight entertainment which was playing him and Atkinson did this impromptu performance, Brilliant !

TASK 20 you Tube/ daily motion

TASK 19 Web 2.0 Awards : BLOG GUIDES

Not only did I think it was a good way to start at the top of the list , I wanted to have a bit more practice with Tehnorati, which btw was the winner.

Before I logged in, I searched for my blog and happily found I was one of two with kit kat as a term.

I then saved myself as a favourite to my acount as no one else had!!

I had a further look at their tools and found this form but will try and set up my return pinging later.

Automate this! You can have your blog software ping for you. Just enter into your weblog tool's configuration for Pings and Notifications. Check our ping configuration page for more information.
