Nebraska Learns 2.0

Over the last few months, I have been participating in an online workshop being offered through the Nebraska Library Commission called Nebraska Learns 2.0. The purpose of the program is give librarians the much needed knowledge about the ever expanding world of technology, and to get libraries to think of new ways technology can serve our patrons and communities. Through simple excercises I have learned about new applications such as twitter, wikis, RSS Feeds, generators, social tagging and bookmarking and more! I've always thought that I was in the know on technology, but walking through this workshop has proved that advancement and innovation are everyday occurances and that it will take lifelong learning to stay with the times.
Nebraska Learns 2.0 is a workshop that anyone interested in the ever evolving world of technology can take advantage of. You don't have to be a librarian or a member of the NLC; you just have to be ready to learn, discover and have a little bit of fun in the process. Simply go the Nebraska Learns 2.0 Blog to get started, and if you have any thoughts on ways we could improve our services through new technologies, be sure to let us know.
