What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
I liked You Tube and Flickr the best from these activities.
How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
It has taught me more tools to use and broadened my knowledge of devices and services that I may get questions from patrons about in the near future.
Were there any take-aways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
Not really, I had some knowledge of many of the things we learned about or else there was something I already knew about that was comparable.
What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?
Maybe take a look at the order of the activities. It seemed to be a little more dull towads the middle.
And last but not least…
If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you again chose to participate?
Yes, more than likely
How would you describe your learning experience in a few words or a few sentences, so we can share our successes and promote this program?
It was overall good. The toughest part was finding time to do the activities. If I had to do it again I wish that it would have been in a season other than summer because it was hard to do amidst summer reading.

Number 21 required me to discover some useful search tools for locating podcasts. I checked out several and and listen to some podcasts. I found them easy to use overall. I can see the appeal in some ways in that it gives another outlet for people to put out their ideas whithout having to spend a lot of time, money or use a lot of equipment in doing so.

Number 19 was about looking at any site from the Web 2.0 awards list. I chose "last.fm" a music site. It took me a little while to figure out to navigate through the site, but it seemed to have quite a bit music. Once I adjusted to the set-up, it wasn't too difficult to figure out.
Number 18 gave me the chance to look at online productivity tools. I had never heard of these before so it was a new experience for me. I explored Google Docs and found it fairly easy to use. I can certainly see the appeal in this fomat as opposed to software based tools. There are less steps devices to have to use.
