We are at 30 comments about Thing 1 — Letter Pop

September 24, 2008

I continue to be amazed at the observations by the staff participating in Maryland Libraries Learning 2.1.

I hope that you continue to completely express your ideas about each thing in a paragraph or two.

A sentence or two as an entire response does not help to extend and deepen the conversation.   As a Learning 2.1 explorer you should do your best to answer all of the questions of the discovery exercises at with a little length and thought.

Keep up the GREAT work!


Welcome to the Maryland Libraries Learning 2.1 Blog

June 6, 2008

Welcome all those continuing the Learning 2.1 journey with us here in Maryland.   We (Jennifer and I) want this blog to be the place where you share your experiences with Learning 2.1 during your journey.   That way, you don’t have to create another place on the web that you may or may not continue after your journey.

The Learning 2.1 program is a continuation of the Learning 2.0 project that we did statewide in 2007.  This follow up program will take a slightly different approach to the different things to be explored.
