Change, change and more change is the order of the day in the 21st century, and if one is not willing to embrace it, one will be left far behind. I am really pleased to have worked through Web 2.0; as a result of the programme I feel more open to exploring the fun aspect of the Web and in developing my skills independently.
Flickr, Youtube and Del.icio.us have been the sites I have enjoyed the most. I would love to surprise my family with my knowledge and skill in exploring the internet and its various applications - I know I am a long way off, but I now feel I have started on the journey.
Myspace and others like it are great vehicles for creating online communities for professional development. No one need feel isolated.
Looked at Auckland City Library bebo and again can see it is a great tool, used judiciously and targeting different age groups. Must be kept up to date and relevant.

I searched for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice on LibriVox and immediately was able to make a choice of downloading it in total, chapter by chapter. Elsewhere I was offered any number of books and articles about Jane Austen and her works. It would be extremely useful to a student wanting criticisms for an assignment.

Thought it would be fun to write my blog using zoho writer. Hope it works out... My lack of experience is showing, but so far, so good. I think I could get to like this site. It's very like microsoft word, but more fun. I would like to explore more. It's a great site.
I thought this would be easy, but there seemed to be a go-slow on this afternoon, I got lost going round and round in circles even with the help of my friend, but we took a deep breath and tried yet again. Despite this, I would like to explore this further.
