It is a new year and also 2015 will be a year of 23 Mobile Things professional development for librarians. I am very happy to welcome North East Florida to the growing 23 Mobile Things family.
On the NEFLIN blog I found this description. It is a good explanation of the 23 Mobile Things DNA – namely to explore the potential of mobile tools to deliver library services:
“This program is designed to help you become comfortable using a mobile platform and it’s tools. These apps may not be around in 5 years. That’s not the point. We hope this process helps you enlarge your comfort zone, make time for professional development and meet colleagues. We hope you will see how other librarians use some of these tools to help their libraries and think about how they may help yours. We hope this program will encourage you to try new things.”
The program will be open to the public under a Creative Commons license when it is finished but until then it is an in house professional development project for the staff of NEFLIN.
I am looking forward to learning more about what Appy hour is – and to learn more about the program and I wish all the more than 500 participants and the organizers a great learning experience – Thank you for learning with us librarians of Florida.
