Week #9 Thing #23

This course will continue to be an good experience. Thing #23 has just become a temporary resting point before continuing the journey. I have enjoyed and needed the opportunity to learn what is out in cyberspace. I had seen many of these tools in use, but didn't know how to harness them. Most of the course took me to places to become "almost proficient" and then gave me latitude to choose to "make do" or explore and learn more.

I think the course was very helpful. I have gained a great deal of knowledge about blogging and the many potential uses associated with a blog. I entered the course with the desire to find a specific end result for my own need (how to use a blog for a reference log). I have gotten all my answers and so much more. Thank you for sharing the guideposts that allowed me to navigate the course.

Whoo hoo Randy! You finished the course and now you can continue sharing your discoveries with us all. I really appreciate learning about how you're working with video and images so that those of us who are graphically challenged can follow your directions!

As you come up with clever ideas for classroom use of these applications, please be sure to share them by putting them on the curriculum wiki.

Congratulations on finishing - I still have a way to go. You are an inspiration to the rest of us! I agree that what I am learning is only the tip of the iceberg and there are times when "almost proficient" can be even more frustrating that just plain ignorance. Hopefully we are a profession full of life-long learners who will continue to explore and learn more, rather than "make do".
