    As we have all seen during recent political events and natural disasters, social media tools are helping to change the world. We need to consider how these tools should also be changing our classrooms and schools, and how they impact our students as learners and future citizens and leaders. We have to participate to know.
    I learn much and am grateful every day for the resources, ideas and conversations shared by the generous, thoughtful educators to whom I am connected online, particularly through my Twitter feed. I literally feel that I “stand on the shoulders of giants” who push my thinking, enlighten me and just generally make me better at what I do.

    PART 2: Write a brief final blog post reflecting on your overall course experience and next steps.
    HOW TO: For this task you will use the Voicethread account you created as part of Thing 1. Just click the "Sign In or Register" button on the presentation above, sign in, then go to the first slide to leave your first comment, then the second slide to leave your second comment. (You will need a microphone, though you can also use the "phone comment" feature if you prefer). IMPORTANT TIP: Voicethread recording works better if you don't have a bunch of webpages open in other tabs or windows -- those pages are competing for your computer's resources.

    on a Voicethread:
    Click the "Sign In or Register" button on the presentation above and sign in.
    Click the Comment button, then click Record. (If asked to allow
    Voicethread to access your microphone, click Allow).
    Start talking (Don't be nervous! You can cancel and re-record as many times as you like.)
    Click stop recording when you are finished. You will hear a preview of your recording.
    Click Save (or Cancel to start over). Your comment will appear on one side of the slide.
    Repeat for Slide 2/Comment 2.
    ⌘ TIP: Voicethread recording works better if you don't have a bunch of webpages or windows competing for your computer's resources. Close everything but the page/tab containing the Voicethread.

    Thanks for hanging in throughout the "23 Things" journey. I hope you have discovered, explored, made connections, been curious, been challenged, overcome frustration, felt accomplished, grown a bit and shared with others... and, most of all, I hope you will keep going!
    :) Shelley

    Post at least three Tweets -- one can be a "Hello world, I am here to learn" kind of tweet. The other two should be relevant to education -- simply share a favorite web resource or something of value from your Google Reader -- be sure to visit the actual article or post so that you can get the permalink. (People won't follow you back if you never post anything. I still take way more than I give on Twitter, but I am working on that).
