More Things on a Stick Thing 47: Evaluation
I'm glad that I had continued blogging between the original 23 Things and More Things on a Stick. There was a ton of new and useful information in this set that helped me build on what I knew and was using, which is the ideal. I read through every item on every Thing and noted and commented on a large portion of the examples.
The blogging tools that add visual elements will be very useful.
I think if I can work with the Screencasting tools a bit more and get both sound and voice to work, I will be able to do some mini-tutorials here. I'd like to try a little podcasting as well, though I did not get that to work this time around either.
I think that this is a great time to put tools such as are included in the 23 Things Programs in the hands of individuals who might be able to offer something new and different to the library world, even if they do not do it from within the confines of their own library web sites.
For those libraries that do embrace these tools, more power to you, I think you will find that you are now a more creative, entertaining and human presence in the lives of your customers.
