23 Things Kansas – zombie invasions, optional

Had a great webinar with the planning committee of the 23 Things Kansas project on tap for next year. I volunteered to share my love of JING!  I don’t have to present until the end of March, but I definitely want to promote this to my libraries (including big ones like Olathe and Lawrence Public).

The Very First 23 Things project was designed to expose folks to all things 2.0 – social networking, blogging, Web-based software, and such.  We have included a mix of software, social networking and hardware (Flip Cameras, for example).  I’m excited.  I’m most excited to be sharing WordPress with so many people!


Heather locked herself in the NEKLS Lab this morning to create our Project Web site (KLOW, of course):
(granted, there’s nothing there yet…we just got access today)

The Content (What the presenters have to present):

  • Broad description as the introduction
  • How does the tool fit into our broad categories (sharing, productivity, community)?
  • List of resources, which includes comparisons and contrasts of different tools and WebJunction tie-ins
  • Full set of instructions for using one of the tools
  • An action activity where they use the tool (which they should write about on their blog, which they created in lesson 1)
  • Optional: Module can include videos, handouts, and other content that seems appropriate
