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.
There are 65000 libraries in Europe welcoming more than 100 million people each year. That is an amazing knowledge infrastructure to make our communities smarter.
In this short video some of these statistics and core values are shared.
Libraries connect people and their knowledge – and support learning and knowledge creation.
Spend 90 seconds watching this video to celebrate and highlight the difference libraries make everyday across Europe and the rest of the world.
Libraries change lives.
The video is published by Public Libraries 2020 and The Reading & Writing Foundation. It is also strongly approved by the Library Avengers.
I am very proud to welcome another 23 mobile things program to the #23mobilethings familiy – Welcome Alaska #23mobilethingsAK.

Thank you Daniel Cornwall (@DanielCornwall) for your contribution to keeping this learning program alive.
I was recently asked what my next spare time project would be.
I made a short video for you about how my time is prioritized these days. Lots of learning opportunities – I love that.
The video is also a test of the short video blog format that I am considering using more… So tell me what you think?
I expect the library gamification and nudging theory projects I mention will be of global interest by the way.
