Week 9 #23 Summary

I did learn about some interesting things on this journey.
I did not know what wikis, pods, etc were.

This program has highlighted the fact that I do not do well with self-learning.

I do much better with classroom structure and a teacher.

I was not really surprised to find out that I am definitely technologically challenged.

I would learn this better with a teacher.

I did not choose to participate this time. I felt forced to do it.

If I really wanted an MP3 player , I would have purchased my own. I am not going to know what to do with it anyway.

My learning experience was frustrating to say the least. I was often in tears or close to it.
I do not have the time to spend hours everyday on the computer. I do not have the desire to spend my time there.

I want to read actual books that I hold in my hand, curled up in a comfy chair or laying in bed or best yet, out on my deck swing.

I enjoy the outdoors. I have enough trouble keeping up with all the junk e-mail I get everyday.

I love the computer for e-mail, chatting, shopping, searching.

I do not want to read lots of RSS feeds everyday. I do not have time that I want to spend reading other peoples blogs, etc.

I have definitely learned that all this technology is not for me.

I would like to know how to use my digital camera and how to share pictures by e-mail.

Whenever I read the directions and follow through on something, I cannot do it again. I have not really learned it.

I need to be shown, then talked through it and have to do it a few times to really learn it.

I must say, I am glad this experience is over.

Week 9 #22 audiobooks

I was able to sign up for Net Library.

I downloaded the book "I Lost Everything in the Post-Natal Depression" by Erma Bombeck.

When I first downloaded it, I could play it.

When I go back to it, I don't know how to play it. I can only download it again.

I wanted to download it to a CD but can not seem to figure out how to do that.

This is all very, very discouraging to me.

I feel totally stupid.

I don't understand why I have to go through this.

Week 9 #21 Podcasts

I looked at some podcasts and some of them are neat. there sure are alot of them out there.

I dont understand how to get the rss feed for it on my blog page.

Things that I dont know how to do frustrate me.

I also keep losing the pages I need. then I have to start over.

Some of the podcasts I was interested in, I couldnt get to play.

I do not like the computer world.

I liked the childrens book radio and subscribed to it but do not know how to put the rss feed on my blog page.

Week 9 #20 You Tube

I liked many of the videos on You Tube.

I like the McDonalds commercials and I like the pets & animals.

I was not able to view alot of them. I couldn't figure out the problem but they wouldn't play. the screen stayed black with a circle moving around. The ones that did play started right away.

I viewed a McDonalds one once and then couldn't get it to play again.

I think I have an aura that is against technology. I have incredible, unusual problems when I am dealing with computers.

I tried to put a You tube video on my blogger. It said it would be there. so far, I haven't seen it there but who knows. Maybe it still is coming. We can only hope.

Sandbox wikis

I did leave an entry on the sandbox wikis about my favorite breed of dogs.

I did enter my blog there.

Week 8 #19

From the Web 2.0 awards list, I explored Biblio.com.

It is a site for searching for used books, rare books and out-of-print books.

When you buy books from them you are supporting literacy and education.

They have used portions of their profits to help build 7 community libraries in south america.

I searched for the used book, Carbonel by Barbara Sleigh.

This book is not as hard to find or as expensive since it has been recently re-published.

Many of the books are from the UK but they have converted the money to U.S. dollars.

I like the site. It is fun to search for books. Anything related to books is applicable for a library setting.
