One of my assignments for Information Literacy is to participate in the 23 Things Learning 2.0 project, an activity that was first started in 2007 and sought to educate librarians and other information professionals on the use of up and coming social media and Web 2.0 technologies. At first, I was a bit put out by the assignment because these are technologies that I have long been familiar with and use on a daily basis, but then I realized that the challenge for me is not learning how to use these things, but learning how they can be applied in an instructional setting. So begins my 23 things challenge.
I will be maintaining a reflection journal on my experiences as I complete the assignment and will be indexing my entries under a “23 things” tag.
