23 MOBILE THINGS
23 Things introduces learners to Web 2.0-based technologies through small, participatory modules. It has been successful and popular around the world since it was first introduced by Helena Blowers of Charlotte/Mecklenberg County Libraries in North Carolina in 2006. Her “23 Things” for information technology was based on Stephen Abram’s (2005) social networking site. Her program concentrated on hands-on discovery, play, and creating an atmosphere of learning (Blowers, 2008, p. 57).
