23 things: Summary

When I started the 23 things project, I challenged myself to think about apps, sites, and software that I regularly use in new ways, especially how these can be used for information literacy instruction. While I did not report everything that I tried while completing this assignment, I did focus on those services that I explored with library vision. I did not want to rely on what I already knew about a program or service to complete the activities; I wanted to consider new ways to apply social media, software, and networks in an instructional and professional setting. I found some of the services more useful than others for ILI (social bookmarking, blogs, wikis, and custom searches to name a few), but I enjoyed the process of discovery and learning as I experimented with the various things listed on the SLA’s 23 things program.
