Blog Entry 1
I am a University of Wisconsin-Madison student enrolled in LIS 635 Reference and Information Services for the Fall 2009 semester. This is my 23 Things Blog entry for items 1,2, & 3. I am looking forward to completing the “23 Things” blog because I have never heard of it before and it sounds very interesting to me. This is my first entry.
1. Read this blog & find out about the program
I think that this program sounds very technologically interesting. I have taken other online classes and have been exposed to Blogging, RSS News Feeds and Tagging. I have no experience with Podcasting, Wikis, or Video and Imaging hosting. I work on a computer daily but I have never learned some of these applications. This program will enable me to learn about new 2.0 technologies and build on the skills that I already have.
2. Discover a few pointers from lifelong learners and learn how to nurture your own learning process.
Learning can take place everywhere and individuals must take an active role in their own education. You are responsible for your own learning and goals must be set to achieve your goals. You must create your own learning tool box, use technology to your advantage and view problems as challenges. Throughout our careers we must folow these rules to remain active in our own individual learning path. I made the decision to return back to school and get my Masters Degree. This decision has made me more aware of technology and the learning tools available in todays enviroment. Librarians must keep up with technology to thrive in the library world.
3. Set up your own blog & add your first post.
The blog is now set up and my first post is finished. Look for more information on the “23 Things” as I continue to learn their significance in the library world.
