Reflection

My favourite discoveries/exercises on this learning journey was getting to know Flickr, libraries using RSS and finding about e-books, and how to access them.
What I enjoyed the most from this learning journey was playing with the image generator, and finding out about how libraries are using social networks to approach their patrons. It was interesting to see the different opinions people had about this.

This programme has assisted my lifelong learning goals as now I want to try out new things in my life that I have not tried before. For example, out of the 23 exercises, except for 2-3 exercises, all of the rest were new stuff for me- I had never heard about them, and I have never tried to find out about them.
But through this journey that I took, I now know much more about web 2.0, and how efficient theses applications/web sites can be for the librarians.

Overall, I thought this whole programme was very good however there were a couple of exercise (such as podcasts) that took me a long time to figure out how to access the things that I needed to, in order to complete the exercise.
However, I thought this was okay, because it was like a challenge for me to independently find out use these sites.
What I found really struggling was trying to finish the exercise on time, on my own ( I didn't want help unless I REALLY needed it).
I managed to complete all of them by myself, and on time -which I am so proud of :)

Anyway, I think this journey was really useful- I gained a lot of information about web 2.0 and how libraries can relate to them, and I now think that I am capable of using them within the library to help patrons.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for organising such a wonderful learning journey!

Well done Lemon Holic - you should be very proud of yourself doing such a great job without help and finishing on time! Pleased to see you have learnt so much and found some new things to try.
Keep on discovering!
