Last year I participated in the ANZ 23 Mobile Things course facilitated by Abigail Willemse and Kate Freedman. This involved learning about various mobile apps and technologies on a weekly basis, undertaking practical activities and participating in Twitter chats.
Some of the 23 ‘things’ were familiar to me such as Twitter and Library Thing but I learned about many new apps such as HistoryPin and discovered how augmented reality can be used in libraries. During the course I began using the Feedly and Pocket mobile apps which I’ve since found invaluable to manage my social and professional reading. I loved interacting with the friendly and enthusiastic librarians on this course.
