Final Post

As per Dr. Farmer's request, I am posting about some of the readings I enjoyed the most. Though I found the reading within the texts interesting, I must admit that I enjoyed the interactive readings (i.e. 23 Things) far more useful.
The first text that I enjoyed related to Creative Commons. Since a librarian is responsible for spreading the word regarding copyright. I found it quite appropriate to discuss copyright and the internet. I loved the idea that people, mostly teachers, are openly posting ideas so that people like me can use their great ideas and tweak them to suit my needs. The goal of a library is not to make money, it is to share information. Creative Commons follows that philosophy. The point is to share information not to make money, but to enrich others' learning experience.
The other reading that I found most was the thing that I chose to do my presentation on...delicious.com. I use this website ALL the time. I wish I had known about it so much longer ago. I thought the 23 Things did a great job of introducing me to the ease of the site. From there, it provided me with a list of other websites that provided me with more research. I chose to read those additional readings and feel that I am now a Delicious.com expert. In fact, I am giving an extended inservice presentation to my colleagues next month to introduce them to the website. So all in all, it was a success. The point was to learn, and whether I wanted to or not...I did :0)

  1. That is really cool that you can use what you are learning right away in your job. I am finding that a benefit too.

    When I discovered Del.cio.us I was delighted too! What a fabulous idea and a great site!
