Doodad 23

WOW! I did it. I never thought it would happen.
I was pretty vocal about my feeling about 23 Things at the beginning. I was not into it. Way too much reading and writing for me. I want to do, create, experiment, play, not just read and write, and that is what I thought it was going to be. However, once I got into it, I realized it was so much more than that. These Things will allow me, and have allowed me to do, create, experiment, and play. I have enjoyed this process and would definitely participate again.
My journey turned around when I was given the link to a NING. I decided to take a look and realized that there were some pretty good ideas on this NING, and probably on others. Once I started working with MASHUPS I realized it was going to begin to be something I like to do. Then I discovered Mixbook and Wordly. Those were fun and I was able to see the value of these tools in my classroom. I found Voicethread to be very useful and I am excited to use this in many different aspects of my professional life both with the children and on different committees in which I am a member.
As I stated earlier, I would definitely do this again. I have enjoyed the journey and thank everyone who made it possible.

  1. I'm so glad you all 23 Things! I thought you were a natural for it. Thank you for sticking with it even when you thought it was "too much reading and writing." Well done!
