1.) My favorite discovery was blogging. I love being able to communicate with other like-minded people, some of whom I may never actually meet in person but contribute to my learning experiences.
2.) This program has assisted my lifelong learning goals of continuing to learn something new on a daily basis.
3.) Flickr is an unexpected discovery I made in doing this program, and I'm anxious to use it this next school year with our teachers.
4.) I can't think of anything you all could do differently. The main thing that helped me was working on my "Things" at LIS so that I could receive immediate help "from the experts" when I was stuck, and I would highly recommend this method for those of the faint of heart, like me.
5.) I most certainly would participate in any future programs.
6.) Amazing and enlightening.

I do see that the blogs from other teachers and librarians could be helpful, and I like the fact that they are easily accessible. It was interesting to read about middle school scheduling, as our school is similar in that the most demanding classes are taught in the morning, and I understand the reasoning behind that for most; however, now they are saying that teenagers don't really become alive until about 11:00 in the morning, so maybe administrators need to re-think the hours that school even begins for teens. Of course, I also understand the reasons why students need to work after school and participate in extra-curricular activities.
Podcasting has been my most challenging and probably my most interesting Thing of the 23.
The names of the China Olympics Mascots are Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying, and Nini.
They represent four of China's most popular animals--the fish, the panda, the Tibetan Antelope, and the swallow. The fifth mascot is the Olympic flame.
I recorded sound; however, it doesn't seem to be working now.
