  • Thing #15 – Read a few perspectives on L2 and reflect in your blog.
  • It has already helped me assist borrowers with questions about the Internet and the resources the Library is offering.
  • I looked at the whole process as a dare - if the rest of the staff could do this, so could I as a representative of the over-60 crowd!
  • The most eye- opening part of Learning 2.0 for me has been the variety of ways that people can engage with each other socially online.
  • # 23 Thing, AT LAST! – I didn’t think I could do it, but I worked hard and here I am.
  • Thank for increasing my knowledge in Technology. If it hadn't been for you and Learning 2.0- my knowledge of technology would still been in a very small box.
  • I feel like Cinderella who just finished her chores in time to go to the Ball. (But the chores were a learning experience and hold promise for the future.)
  • I want to thank all those who made this Learning experience possible. I hope I get to talk to you personally to tell you how exciting it was to go through the program.
  • Overall I thought this was a crazy good program, really easy, and really made me think.
  • It helps to have nice little incentives of course, but I think the true reward (whether or not we want to admit it) is that we're improving our minds

  • Build the program for late bloomers
  • Allow participants to blog anonymously..
  • Communicate regularly using 1.0 methods
  • Focus on discovery & encourage challenges.
  • Encourage staff to use each other and work together.
  • Remember that’s it not about acceptance or “doing it right”. It’s about exposure!
  • Find funding for incentives – huge ROI!!!
  • Practice transparency and radical trust.
  • Continually encourage staff to PLAY!
  • Exposing staff to new tools Encouraging PLAY Empowering individuals Expanding the knowledge toolbox Eliminating FEAR
