When this project began I was excited but worried too. I have been learning a new position plus all this new technology. I admit that I did not work on it at first as much as I should have (actually at all), because I was so busy learning and keeping up with my new position. I wasn't sure if I would finish it or not. Now that I have finished I am grateful to have this project and my new position at the same time. Hopefully I will be able to implement some of the items, since I don't really know another way.
I found the set up for the project to be a little intimidating because I was afraid to ask for help when I encountered bumps in the road. That also caused me to work harder and dig deeper to answer my own quesions, so in reality I think I learned so much more than I would have in a tradional meet once a week class. I definately liked the format and would participate again.
Since so much of what we covered was new to me, it is hard to pick favorites. Just having a blog was huge for me, but now I feel pretty comfotable with adding anything to my blog in Blogger. I think I enjoyed del.icio.us, the image generators, YouTube, Animoto, Flickr, ZoHo Writer and RSS feeds the most. Actually it is hard to choose. As I read back over my blog, I am reminded of how many new things I learned! My next goal to work on embedding these tools into my daily life, both personal and professional. I no longer feel out of the loop with what the kids are involved with and might even appear cool for knowing a few new things. I have seen several sites I want to share with the teachers that they can hopefully pass along, Zoho Writer being one. If I can generate some excitement among students for their assignments using some of these tools, the time and effort are worth it.
