The 23 Things Program[]

Why "23 Things"? Most of us know that the best way to get things done is to make a list. 23 Things was inspired by an article in Information Today by Steven Abrams. It was adapted by Helene Blowers of the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County into a program for staff.

Helene's ideas have been modified and used all over the world to introduce and encourage educators to explore Web 2.0 programs and websites.

What is Web 2.0? This is a short term used to describe the collaborative web. These are websites, technologies and services that encourage people to work together. This can be like working on a Microsoft Word document through Google Docs, or describing what a website is about by using Delicious.

This website is a Wiki, a website that creates easy links between pages and allows lots of different people to work together and share information. It has example activities and selected links. Please contribute and add to the resources we have here.
