Calling all volunteers

30 Apr

We love that everyone is enthusiastic about joining us and working through the 23 mobile things with us.  But we need YOUR help, we cannot do it alone.

Each week we will be featuring a blog post about the current week’s ‘thing’, a weekly wrap up post and of course the interactive tweets etc.

Don’t forget, if you already know about all these 23 Mobile Things, why don’t you sign up as a mentor and help out the others doing this course?

We need volunteers (or as I like to think of you) guests to help us create each of these posts.

Here is what is involved:

The feature post:

Will be published on the Monday or Tuesday
Will summarise and link to the 23 Mobile Things ‘thing’ page- but will also include our own variations/perspectives/challenges on the Thing.
Each post is divided into three sections:

  • Discover (what the Thing is all about)
  • Explore (do it for yourself, experiment!)
  • Thinking points (own variations and challenges, how can you use it personally, in your library, etc?)

The wrap-up post:

Will be published on the Saturday or Sunday
Will gather the best bits from people and put them all in one spot.

  • Twitter: We will be using a twitter capture program to capture tweets using the #anz23mthings
  • Blog posts: We ask that people link back to the week’s featured post on our blog so we can track the pingpacks (there will also be a blogroll)
  • Facebook: Hopefully that will be easy
  • Personal reflection: What did you learn this week? Maybe you have a take-home point to share with us!
  • Other: Have a unique way- let us know.

Interested- fantastic, here is the next step.

Allocation will be on a first come, first served.
Have another look at the 23 Mobile Things and see which ones you would like to post for.
Then fill in the small survey below.  Please fill it in for each post you wish to do.  We would be very happy if you wanted to do more than one post.

As they appear in my inbox I will allocate them.  The below table shows which ones are already allocated. I will also send you an e-mail confirmation/reminder.

Thankyou (no copyright information given)

    I’d love to but its all just a bit scary at the moment, seeing as how I haven’t actually met most of what we will be covering. I’d hate to be the one to totally mess things up. Guessing am not alone.

      Hi Katalin – thanks for your comment 🙂 I know it can seem a bit scary now, but I’m sure we will all learn a lot. Maybe one of the end of week posts might be an easy way to get in because then you can reflect on what you’ve learned during the week. It’s also more a compilation of other content that has been happening during the week so maybe that might be a good starting point rather than a beginning of the week post 🙂

      But there is no pressure on you to do one of these if you would rather not. There will also be the opportunity throughout the course for reflection weeks and blog posts, etc.. maybe that might be a good opportunity for you to share what you have been learning. If you have any questions at all, please also free to contact me or Kate 😀

        I’m with Katalin, I’m not ready to be a volunteer, however I am a sponge and ready to soak up as much information as I can over the course. Really looking forward to improving my knowledge in all areas and being introduced to some new mobile things.

    That’s fantastic – it’s great to have so many different people taking part in the course; I’m sure we are all going to learn so much from each other 😀
