23 Things Kansas - Week 1: Blogging
I am participating in the 23 Things Kansas program for Kansas library employees, trustees, volunteers and friends. 23 Things Kansas is described as "a fun way to learn about and practice with online tools for community, sharing and productivity." Over the next 23 weeks you will see a weekly (hopefully) post concerning the assignment I'm working on that week. Completion of all 23 assignments is worth 30 hours of continuing education credit and, more importantly, a chance at winning a fLip video camera. The first assignment is to begin a blog - so I'm ahead of the game. However, down the road when we get to such things as screencasting, presentation sharing and cloud computing (I don't even know what that is!) I may not be so glib. You will likely be reading posts filled with angst, frustration and a few bleeps
, but the worst I can do is make a total fool of myself on YouTube and, seriously, how many people actually view that stuff?
If you happen to be a member of the Kansas Library Community and want to join in, check out the web site at http://www.23thingskansas.org/. It's too late to get in on the CE credit, but there's still a lot to learn.
