Ten Tips about 23 Things
Blowers, Helene
School Library Journal, v54 n10 p53-57 Oct 2008
Learning 2.0--aka the "23 Things"--is a self-paced online learning program that the author designed in 2006 as a one-person crusade to move an entire organization of 500-plus staff onto the Web 2.0 bandwagon. Along with numerous requests to duplicate the program, many seek insight on how to do this successfully. In this article, the author shares ten tips for hosting a successful "23 Things." These are: (1) Encourage networking and the learning will follow; (2) Allow participants to blog anonymously; (3) Use 1.0 methods to communicate; (4) Encourage group discovery; (5) Design the program for late bloomers; (6) Focus on discovery, not skill building; (7) Reward staff for learning; (8) Online means hands-on, not hands-off; (9) Enable transparency and practice radical trust; and (10) Continually encourage staff to play.
