Vermont’s 23 Things – Week 8

Filed under: @publics, Continuing Education — vtdeptlib @ 5:07 pm

Followers of Vermont’s 23 Things, we’ve arrived at Week 8!

This week, we’ll be learning more about tagging and looking closely at del.icio.us and technorati, two Web 2.0 applications that take serious advantage of tagging (we’ve already looked at a few; Flickr, LibraryThing, and blogs all use tags). Tagging allows you to associate keywords with online content – webpages, pictures, posts, etc. We’ll also be reading and blogging about a few perspectives on Library 2.0.

And as always, it’s still not too late to participate. Spend some time with the first few things, create a blog to record your Vermont’s 23 Things thoughts and adventures, and send me (mara.siegel@mail.dol.state.vt.us) the link to have it added to the still growing list on the Participant Blog page.

If this is the first time you’ve heard of Vermont’s 23 Things, head over to http://vermontlibrarieslearn.wordpress.com and see what it’s all about.
