Week 9 Activity 23 Boo Hoo

I am not ready for this to be over! My one word that best describes this learning experience is...
I am a life-long learner and SLL2.0 has been a motivational guide this summer. My favorite discoveries are using avatars and graphic captioners because they are fun and my students will love them. The most difficult tool for me to grasp was tagging using and now I can't imagine how I functioned without it.
I am anxious to get back to school to see how much access our district allows to blogs and wikkis. If we are able to use them with students, I will have lots of suggestions for how they can improve the research projects my collaborators traditionally do each year. And I have tagged some excellent podcasts and videos that will demonstrate to teachers the power of these tools.
I am sorry to have reached the end of this course, but of course, it is just the beginning of my new journey into the world of Web 2.0.Thank you, thank you, thank you to the creators and faciliators of the course. And another thank you to fellow participants who have made comments and suggestions to me and whose clever, creative blogs gave me ideas for my own.

Congratulations! Glad you liked the discovery experience as much as we do! You are now an official member of the CSLA 2.0 Team and your blog has moved to the "Congratulations - 2.0 Team" list.

Keep on cheering on your colleagues as they post their 23 things. It is fun, isn't it!

Best wishes.

I have also been wondering about how much access we'll have to these great tools when we are in the school environment. Congratulations on finishing all of this!
