I can't believe how quickly these 23 Things came and went! It seems like just yesterday I was setting up my blog. I have explored/experimented/goofed up/learned so much from this project. I think the biggest impact on me was blogging. I can see so many different uses for blogging in and out of the classroom now and my mindset towards blogging in general has changed dramatically. It is a great personal and educational tool!
There were so many different tools presented during this project that I want/hope to incorporate into my classroom in one way or another: blogging (of course), wikis, voicethread, screencasting, podcasting- just to name a few. And there are so many others that I will or have already used in my personal/professional life.
This program was a definite challenge to me, forcing me to make the time to try out the different Things. Many of the Things presented had similar features but on closer inspection they also all had unique uses as well. This was just one of the challenges I faced and learned from. Quite often great ideas are passed along to me, but I don't always have or make the time to try them and therefore I don't realize their true potential. This project helped give me a reason to try them- and that has made all the difference. I wonder- is there a way to do 23 Things for tablets?
