Wow! The end of the course!
First of all, let me thank each and everyone at CSLA who had a part in putting together this awesome experience. I can not believe the things I learned this summer that are happening in the Internet world. I really appreciate having this remarkable opportunity to expand my horizons and continue my life long learning. Thank you all so much.
I loved creating my own blog complete with avatar- decorating and "themeing" it. I guess of all the sites ZOHO would be my favorite. It has such incredible potential for use at our school and in our district. But I had a good experience at all the sites. I have put aside time this month to go back and revisit all the sites again to confirm what I remember and to really familiarize myself with them so that I can help students and staff access them easily.
I think the amount of satisfaction I derived from learning about all these new things was surprising to me. It really made me feel good about myself that I could learn and do these things that so many of my colleagues know nothing about. It also demonstrates the pride and professionalism that I bring each day to my "paraprofessional" position because I cared enough to do this on my own to take my skills and knowledge of the Internet to a new level.
I would love to do this type of "discovery" program again. It has been so "enriching" to have participated in Library 2.0.
