That's All, Folks!
This course has me so jazzed I can't stand it! I just wish I had more time to play with all of the different technologies. One of the biggest surprises was with a technology I had experience with -- Facebook. At the 2008 International Master Gardener Coordinators Conference in Washington DC, it was discussed using Facebook as a place to create a social network for Master Gardener volunteers. They could share their projects there, as well as getting to know other MGs. I'm tempted to create a special group for our MG interns and mentors this year. We'll see what happens. I think the one technology I'm just not sure of and am trying to get used to is Twitter. LIke verything else, use it or lose it, so am going to see what I can think of using this stuff. Just hope I can get some friends to join me on that journey.
I belong to the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA.) I'm hosting something that's called a MAVA Connections -- basically a group of leaders of volunteers getting together to discuss a topic. I titled mine "using today's technology with volunteers" and we're going to discuss some of the technology presented during this course. I think folks will be as surprised as I was at the great applications out there.
I cannot thing of any ways to improve this course. I really enjoyed it and thank Ms. Baker for doing it! AMY BAKER ROCKS!
