I have learned so much in this class and it is hard to sum up. The biggest thing for me is my thinking has really evolved, and I am enthusiast about the future of my library. I know it is clique but anything is possible!
It was always difficult to see how I could implement technologies in my library without the support of my colleagues. It is hard to get support when no one understands the technology. I have learned how to support the implementation of new technology in my library, which is so valuable. I am excited to apply these tools to the workplace. I hope I can make a difference in my library.
I am inspired to create a game to teach students information literacy skills next Fall. Hopefully, I will get the help I need to make it happen. This Spring semester I am going to be teaching my first online course in the Associates degree program via Blackboard. I am excited to incorporate some of the techniques that helped me learn in this class. I am going to promote discussion and interaction between the students. I am considering a wiki portfolio of all of their work as a final project. This course has sparked ideas on so many fronts. I cannot name them all, but I am happy I had the opportunity to take this course.
