Thing 23-not the end however...

Oh my name is Skippito Friskito
My 23 things are complete-o
It was such a joy
to learn the new toys
I will blog till I drop dead-ito!

I can honestly say this inservice is my favorite of the decade! Sorry-a class on guide reading groups is number 1. I discovered many new tools that I will assist others in implementing in the classroom, as I don't have a homeroom. I loved the trading cards as an assignment but the Ning as way of collaborating with colleagues. Library2Play pushed me to learn about something I was uncomfortable with in a nonthreatening way. It reminded me always to learn something new-a habit I was falling out of. I was surprised to learn that I am not always a 'collaborator'. I can and do often communicate with others however it is for specific information. This is a mind set that has in the past served me well but alias times change and so do I.
I needed more help on some bigger things like RSS, Rollyo and podcasting. My attempts to overachieve were foiled. Perhaps offering a link for 'Library2Play Dummies' would be helpful. Or maybe a private Ning-where questions could be asked. I will continue to pursue more training in this area. I am less knowledgeable, but desirous of the content. Bring it on!!!
My phrase would be mind boggling!
