My favorite discoveries were that blogging wasn't all that difficult and I loved the image generators and learning about wikis and rollyo.
I feel like Library2Play is great for life long learners. I like to be responsible for my own learning. I have to admit that I was worried about finishing all the tasks in time, but it was probably good to have only a specific amount of time to complete them all.
I'm not sure that I am taking away anything all that surprising from this venture. I learned a lot of new ways to incorporate tecnology, but that was my expectation all along.
I don't have any suggestions for how to improve this program. I felt like it was very reasonable, and allowed for people at many levels to feel successful.
I would like to participate in more "things" in the future!
One word to sum up my experience?.....Inspiring!

Okay....I am back with a book talk for one of this year's Lone Star titles, the Compound by S. A. Bodeen.
This type of project is fairly easy to use. The most difficult part was to write the script. As far as the technology part, the most time-consuming part is finding photos that can be used without violating copyright. (That also help the narration make sense.)

I was easily able to export my bookmarks to Delicious. I thought that I was able to share my list by adding a list gadget, but I didn't see it when I previewed my blog.
Most of the tags that were used on Delicious were intuitive.
While Delicious is a great way to be able to access bookmarks from either school or home, I really like the idea of teachers and students being able to share information for research purposes. I'm not quite sure how I would utilize a site like Delicious, but I look forward to hearing your ideas.
I thought that diigo was a super social bookmarking site, particularly for research purposes.

Thing #10 is by far my most favorite activity so far!!! I absolutely love photography and playing with images so using image generators is right up my alley.
