THING 23 - Summarizing the Program

What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey? I liked the BigHugeLab site and the other tools that were related to image creativity. My imagination works better in that regard and I find my interest maintained longer when using those types of activities.

How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals? I am always searching for new things to bring into the classroom. While the content stays pretty much the same with each year - for the most part - how it is shared can change as our student's world changes. This can only help improve their understanding of the information and increase their desire to learn it.

Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you? It was amazing to me just how much is available for teachers, librarians and students to use. The setup for most is easy and the modeled sites and links open doors that might need a little nudge otherwise.

What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept? I'm not sure there's much that shold be changed. The format was pretty straightforward and the concept is GREAT. I would suggest continuing to change and grow, updating activities as your research leads you to what will always be new and interesting tools.

If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you choose to participate? Without a doubt!! But not with a second job going on - it does require time and dedication to get the most out of it.

How would you describe your learning experience in ONE WORD or in ONE SENTENCE, so we could use your words to promote 23 Things learning activities? Highly motivating

Now go and comment on some of the other Players' blogs? You got it! Thanks for the great experience!!!!
