This is The End, Beautiful Friend(s) #23

Exit Interview without the Promissory Note!
What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?

My favorite discovery was making the Podcast! I wanted to learn how and got what I asked for. It was not hard at all and I am definitely going to make more with my class. I am going to continue to make more Podcasts with the Bluebonnets this year. So subscribe to my feed if you like to hear them.
I also like starting my Edublog and Livejournal.
I learned a lot about how to comment and thus promotes your own blog.
How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
One of my goals is to be a writer when I grow up. I have been able to find real author blogs and add comments to their pages. One author posted my comments in her blog! I feel like I have increased the level of professionalism in my writing. I feel like I am on the right road to eventually be published (hopefully before I have a cane or walker). Now that I have Google Reader I am able to view all of my favorite author blogs and continue the writing babble going on between us.

Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you? was FUN!!! I loved discovering new tools (Wikis, Podcasting) that can help me and my campus. I am eager to share them with my team and anyone else who will lend me their ear! I enjoyed encouraging others to keep going and offer suggestions. I made friends here that I never would have made without this 23 Things ( from other schools and districts).
What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?

One thing seemed to have multiple things. Spread them out.
If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you choose to participate?

Sign me up! How can I help?
How would you describe your learning experience in ONE WORD or in ONE SENTENCE, so we could use your words to promote 23 Things learning activities?

Thanks! I am going to continue to check my blogs in case bloggers comment or if anyone needs help with their blog. I am happy to assist.
I think we are going to podcast with Texas History since there are limited resources for Fourth-Grade-level-type resources for the Texas Revolution.
What are some things that your students will do in the coming year?

Congratulations on finishing! I'll be checking back in for both the Bluebonnet podcasts and Texas History! If my folks do anything, we'll pass it on as well.

You are one of those "players" that has really explored the "playground" and beyond it! I can't wait to hear your podcasts, if you do Bluebonnet ones plese send them to me so I can add them to the district Bluebonnet page!
