23 Things is an ingenious way for librarians to forge ahead with new technologies. It seems to me that new and emerging technologies will directly shape the future of libraries. Those who chose never to investigate these things will miss the challenge and the reward of wonder and discovery. The shared learning experience with my colleagues was an invaluable experience. Each endeavor with a colleague presented the opportunity to be the teacher or to be the learner or both, depending on my level of proficiency for that particular thing. I will continue to explore, discover and learn about new technologies. I look forward to watching libraries change and flourish.
I enjoyed finding a high school drama student's video of his recitation of a Shakespearean monologue on a street in Camden, NJ. I was attracted to the video by the title, Hamlet on the Street. I also appreciated the video responses from others who critiqued the student's performance.
