The only downfall was the amount of time devoted was way over the 23 hours. Each new tool I would get lost in researching and using and probably spent 2-3 hours on each individual tool. Even though I spent a lot more time on this course then I thought I would it was well worth it and I really enjoyed the class. I would love to keep abreast of any newer technology tools if another course is ever offered.
Now if I can just get our school to unlock the filter so my students can use my blog and some of the other tools at school . . .

Would be interested in creating podcasts with my students for book reviews this coming school year. Will have to try it out.

Let’s get to know your library a little better. Just like insects we are going to scatter all over the library to look for these answers. To be successful you are going to have to be like cockroaches and infiltrate every crevice in ??? Library. Your goal is to get all the answers within 30 minutes. If you get all the answers (on your own or with a partner) you will receive a small prize. If you get all of the correct answers and handed in your scavenger hunt the fastest you will receive the grand prize! Good Luck!
