I've long lost the ability to track the number of programs replicated worldwide. For a while, I had unknown benefactor who kept up with the program for the first year or so via a google map. But once Minerva Shelved (the alias for someone I still don't know who thank or attribute to) stopped adding links, I only had a rough Delicious tag to keep up with the global growth.
Occasionally, whenever someone sends me an email or link to a new program, I still tag in my old Delicious account. The tag is up to 487 individual programs at the moment, with many of the programs designed to support multiple libraries and/or multiple library systems. At one time I had officially counted that the program had been replicated in 15 different languages and if I tried to count all the national and state library run programs done all over the globe, the impact was easliy somewhere around 700+ orgnaizations.
Here's a few links about IFLA programs that talked about 23 Things:
- Info Literacy Blog: 23 Things as Transformative Learning
- 23 Things Oxford University Libraries
Yup, even after 6 years, the impact of this program worldwide still amazes me !
Yay! You're back.
Keep up your good work.....
We in California made our 2.0 tutorials back in 2008. It was such fun, and such a success. School librarians and then classroom teachers.. .and students too.. all took our classroom Learning 2.0 [teen learning 2.0 and library learning 2.0] tutorials. Thank you for setting up such a great model - and more so for sharing it and letting it 'fly' so far and wide. It does change lives!
