What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
I loved the Image Generators, getting re-acquainted with del.i.ci.ous, and the wiki lesson. I could see how I could really use these with my students and for my teaching. I am so fortunate to be teaching is a school that has a 1:1 laptop program for grades 3-6 and these tools make my job more exciting and more meaningful to my students.
How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
I love technology...and by loving it I have to constantly learn new things. This program was a great example of learning by doing. It gave me so many ideas, practical ideas that I could take right away and use.
Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
I have been thinking of designing some units modeled after this format for my own students.
What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?
I gained the most by the "things" that made me do something. So maybe more of those.
If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you choose to participate?
Absolutely! I also really appreciated being able to take it for credit through Fresno Pacific University.
How would you describe your learning experience in ONE WORD or in ONE SENTENCE, so we could use your words to promote CSLA learning activities?
School Library Learning 2.0 gives you a chance to learn about this exciting new technology and it serves as a model for how we might teach in a Web 2.0 world.
