Welcome to the Region One 2.0: 23 Things program and blog!
This online program was modified and is based on the Learning 2.0 program designed by Helene Blowers, former Technology Director at the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, now Director of Digital Strategy at the Columbus Metropolitan Library. The Learning 2.0 Program is loosely based on Stephen Abram's article, 43 Things I (or You) might want to do this year (Information Outlook-February 2006) and the Website 43 Things. This program also "borrowed" from Learning 2.0 Through Play and Library2Play.
